  • My husband and I visited the museum today and really enjoyed it. There is a lot to see in this old house. All the artifacts were displayed very nicely in a clean environment. The curator was very personable and made us feel welcome with stories about some of the items on display. The theater shows historical clips about Chudnow and his family. We were there for about 2 hours. A great place to hang out and learn about our past.
  • Without a doubt, one of the most fascinating places I’ve ever visited. The tour guides are so informative and professional, and are very entertaining. This was such a cool place to visit!
  • I am a mom to 4 children ranging in ages from 5-14. I thought this was super neat just going alone with my husband.. but we decided on a whim to bring the kids the next time we were in Milwaukee and much to our surprise they all thought it was cool!! They have scavenger hunts for the kids for each room. So while looking at all the old stuff it’s made fun for them. I’ll for sure be going back.
  • Fantastic little museum, each room feels like you stepped into a different shop in the "Streets of Old Milwaukee". This building is packed to the brim with cool pieces of history, not only of Milwaukee but all of the U.S. There is something here for people of all ages.
  • The Chudnow Museum of Yesteryear offers an entertaining and informative look at life in Milwaukee in the 1920s and 1930s. Exhibits span two floors of a huge home that was built in 1869 on the (then) western edge of the city. Today it sits on the eastside of Marquette University's campus. Ample parking is in the back of the building.
