Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum
This Italian Renaissance-style villa, designed and built by architect David Adler in 1923, was originally the residence of Lloyd Smith of the A.O. Smith Corporation and his family. The Villa Terrace features fine and decorative arts dating from the 15th to the 18th centuries, wrought-iron masterpieces by Cyril Colnik and a formal Garden.
The mission of Charles Allis Art Museum and Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum is to fully utilize both historic house Museums, gardens and their art collections for education and community enrichment. As part of the Milwaukee County War Memorial Corporation, the Museums honor the war dead by serving as "living memorials."
