  • I have never seen such a place like this. It is so ornate and beautiful, with attention to detail, it's hard to wrap your mind around it all. It's totally different than anything else, a great getaway and reprieve from normal life. I can't believe someone was able to even conceive of such a design and decor. Amazing experience.
  • Absolutely one of the most beautiful churches I have seen in the United States outside of the Vatican and Rome. You can sit here for hours in contemplation or awe of the beauty. This is a must visit for any midwesterner in my opinion.
  • One of the biggest, amazingly beautiful Basilica I have been, I went during the week, so I was the only one enjoying this amazing place, it was very clean and well-maintained, must see place in Milwaukee.
  • My favorite church. A true sense of peace pervades the atmosphere. The singers are wonderful and I love the Latin songs and prayers.
  • I spent a few hours in Milwaukee and found this place on a list of things to see. The outside if amazing but inside it's even more beautiful and awe-inspiring. The stained glass windows are especially amazing but the statues in the basement are also great, don't miss them

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.
