Virtual Tour

Welcome to the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design! We call it MIAD. We’re excited to present a virtual tour of our incredible urban campus located in the heart of Milwaukee’s most creative neighborhood, the Historic Third Ward. MIAD’s campus is comprised of more than 200,000 square feet of making space in a converted factory. Directly across the street, you’ll find our outstanding student apartments, Two50Two, and a Blick Art Supplies store. Our campus is bordered by the Milwaukee RiverWalk, blocks from Lake Michigan, anchored by galleries, design firms, restaurants and retail stores, and surrounded by numerous green spaces.

You can also take an in-depth look at some of our labs, studios and other spaces on campus here:
