Kader Gallery – The largest gallery space at the Pump House is the Kader Gallery. During a 2008 renovation new walls and lighting were installed, and a beautiful hardwood floor was added. The Kader Gallery honors Audrey Kader, whose efforts during the 1970’s championed founding the Pump House as a cultural center for the La Crosse area.

Front Gallery – The north wall of this gallery is surfaced with a black matte fabric that adds emphasis to this showcase exhibition area. Front Office administrative spaces allow the visiting public easy access to staff and office volunteers. The entrance to the Director’s Office from the Front Gallery is framed by historic arched woodwork.

Balcony Gallery – In addition to art display space, this area features an exhibit of historic photographs. The photographs show the transformation of the water pumping station in 1880 to the cultural center the Pump House is today. The Balcony Gallery frequently hosts the work of student or emerging artists.
