  • What a gem! I took my children and they engaged in a scavenger hunt that was offered, which was a great way to learn more about the historical significance of many of the items in this museum. The house itself is also beautiful with hardwood floors and built-ins. I like the idea rotating the exhibits, I will definitely return to see what's on display next time. So glad someone is preserving and sharing this history!
  • Really fun little house to go check out. Every room is a different theme. Had a great time walking around. Learned a few new things. Took us about an hour to go through the whole place. I recommend stopping in to check it out if you have an hour or so to kill.
  • Cool little museum in downtown Milwaukee showcasing local memorabilia and artifacts. Lots of interesting displays, and when I was there they were showcasing female contributions to everyday life (e.g. invention of monopoly). Staff were very chatty and knowledgeable too.
  • Fantastic place, very helpful and informative staff. The exhibits are very well done and really help you get the sense of immersion in the era. The exhibits are also rotated so that each time you come, there's something new to experience. Very reasonably priced and a guided tour is available at no extra cost. I look forward to coming back in another month when they change over to a new exhibit.
  • Highly recommended. Didn’t think learning could be so fun and interesting. Staff are very knowledgeable and friendly.
