Events at the Rahr-West Art Museum are designed to build community. We like to reach out and connect with people living and working in Manitowoc County. We're not just a fancy Victorian mansion on the corner of Eighth and Park Streets. We reach out and share the treasures we have with children and adults in places like Whitelaw, Valders, Kiel, Two Rivers, Cleveland, Maribel, Francis Creek, and Manitowoc!
