  • We visited this church on a Monday. While the church interior was closed, we could drive right up to the church and examine the architecture from outside. Really easy to do.  more »
  • Worth a visit. The Greek Orthadox service is unique, so you might want to go during a Sunday morning service to get the full effect as Wright intended.  more »
  • This place is absolutely beautiful. I grew up right around the corner, and it's always amazing to go in and see the beautiful masterpiece.  more »

  • Unique Frank Lloyd Wright architecture worth a visit. Friendly staff for the "Doors Open" event.
  • What a beautiful structure. One marvels at the mind of its Creator. How I would love to visit this magnificent edifice. The congregation is to be congratulated for choosing the right architect who departed from traditional Byzanitine architecture and yet incorporated much of it in a new and pleasing form. You chose the "right" man to design your Church. May it stand forever as a monument to our Greek Orthodox Faith!
  • Absolutely beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright design.
  • The Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1956. Wright died in 1959, two years before the church was completed. On either side of the church are sunken gardens.  It is difficult to believe this was designed and built 50+ years ago - it would appear modern if built today. It is best to contact them concerning tours. Previously there were open tour hours however, this has changed. (Of course you can simply go slightly after a Sunday service.) Unless there has been a change in policy, you cannot take pictures inside the church. The interior is deceptive. What appears so large on the outside is significantly small inside. (It’s the angles.) It is an amazing piece of architecture.
  • Such a beautiful church

Where to stay in Milwaukee

Staying in the city center puts you right in the heart of the activity, and means you can take advantage of all the things to do in Milwaukee’s walkable downtown area. Options here include big chain hotels as well as quirky inns. Party animals should sacrifice some sleep to stay close to Milwaukee’s lively bar scene, centered around Water Street. Those who want a little more rest should consider a scenic resort in the greater Milwaukee area; many of these are within easy driving distance of the main attractions.
