May at the Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum

Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum, Milwaukee, WI |

The Italian Renaissance-style Villa Terrace was constructed on a stunning bluff above Lake Michigan in Milwaukee, WI. It was built in 1924 for the Lloyd R. Smith Family. Since 1966, the house and grounds have been home to the Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum. The home is a stunning example of Italian Renaissance architecture, complete with a patio overlooking the lake and fountains and a sprawling garden extending down the bluff and into the vast backyard. It’s always a beautiful place to visit, truly an underrated gem in Milwaukee.
