  • 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.
