Tour opulent Pabst Mansion to discover what life looked like from the top during the Gilded Age. Capt. Frederick Pabst, the founder of Pabst Brewing Co., built this 37-room, 14-fireplace palace between 1890 and 92. As you tour the mansion, which is now a museum, you can see large paintings that Capt. Pabst hung on the walls, as well as highly detailed and embellished furnishings that adorn many rooms. Take a general-admission tour to see the mansion's highlights, or consider pre-booking a grand tour for more thorough exploration of the home.

The bonus is to have its original restored furniture and a great deal original to the home!Thank you for the for foresight of many generous people to save and restore this historical timepiece. A must see!
  • Learn more things about how american people live 100 years ago....

  • Pretty interesting tour. I've been there twice and learned plenty new each time.
