  • Going here is like taking a step into old Europe. The statues, architecture, garden is here for you to explore at a relaxed pace. Plus, the art exhibits are unique, interesting, and thought provoking. Last, at times they have an artist in residence teach the kids or adults an art lesson for free. Cool spot to check out.

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.
