Local nameHaggerty Museum of Art
LocationAvenues West, Milwaukee, United States

The Partick and Beatrice Haggerty Museum of Art, sometimes referred to simply as "the Haggerty", is located at 13th and Clybourn Streets on the campus of Marquette University in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin, United States. The museum opened in 1984 following a university collaborative effort that was chaired by professor Curtis L. Carter. The construction site was decorated by a mural called Construction Fence by American artist and social activist, Keith Haring.

The construction of the museum was made possible by a donation from alumnus and co-founder of Texas Instruments, Inc., Patrick E. Haggerty, and his wife, Beatrice, for whom the museum is named. Haggerty and his wife donated an art collection to the university. Another important benefactor of the museum is David A. Straz, Jr., a Marquette alumnus and philanthropist. The current director of the Haggerty is Susan Longhenry.
