  • Small by museum standards but has very interesting theme-based rooms filled with some serious antiques! Great, friendly staff provide tours. Gift shop with nostalgic treats. Has a soda shop! We learned a lot.
  • This little gem was well worth the $5 admission price. The exhibits are recreations of typical spaces, lovingly hand-created by a passionate and knowledgeable staff. It's a great chance to dig deep into Milwaukee history by looking at a snapshot in time. Ask the tour guide about any topic in the museum...or any topic NOT in the museum...and learn a ton about the past and people of this city!
  • I wish I had visited sooner in my Marquette years. It's so close to campus, cheap, and had many cool items to explore. The initial collector collected hundreds of thousands of items in his lifetime. There's an old soda bar including menus, an old pharmacy, and you can watch videos in the theater. I bought postcards and the Milwaukee board game here, and learned about John Luick, a former Milwaukee resident who made super important contributions to the ice cream industry.
  • Interesting and entertaining history of old Milwaukee. Recreations of drug stores, barber shop, candy store, and even a speak easy. A hidden gem.
  • This was a remarkable experience! A friend of mine recommended this museum, and I absolutely loved it!
