Statue Garden on top of Grohmann Musuem now open!

You probably don't think of parks being on rooftops, but it's surprising how businesses and public places in Milwaukee are embracing the whole green roof concept and making gardens at the top!  Central library and the Clock Shadow Tower building are 2 places that come to mind, of places that recently went green.

My favorite is the statue garden on top of MSOE's Grohmann museum.  This is normally closed during winter months, but it is open again for the summer.  Although these photos were taken last summer, it won't be long and it will soon be green and grassy up there.

Admission to the museum is $5 and you can see several floors of incredibly nice paintings and other art work, most of them European, depicting different types of people working or machinery in action.  They have vending machines in the basement, so you could pick up a drink and enjoy it on the roof.  I think this is one of the best kept secrets in Milwaukee.
