  • Really neat look into the history of Milwaukee. The museum is filled with artifacts from Milwaukee's history and a few from Chicago. Definitely worth a stop if you're in town to visit or a local. They also have a bunch of local treats if you need that Milwaukee tradition fix but don't want to go for custard... or before you go for custard.
  • Great museum featuring pieces of Milwaukee history! My kids love this place, especially the hidden speakeasy and the working old- fashioned phones.
  • Such a lovely place to visit. We had a great time.
  • 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.
  • First time visitor to Milwaukee. Really cool place, with a nice staff. Took the guided tour and it added a lot. Went with some locals who had never been and they loved it.

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.
