  • The memorial is a heart-felt tribute to veterans of numerous wars. It is not particularly different from memorials in other cities. The posters on the 3rd and 4th floors were fascinating and made the ...  more »
  • We had no idea this veteran memorial was here. Happened to be driving by enroute to another stop. So glad we stopped and explored the area. The eternal flame burns on.... a must see in the area.  more »

  • We visited 12/30/17. Filthy, & poorly maintained. Bathroom sinks not functioning. No toilet paper. Full of graffiti. Employees not knowledgeable or helpful. Our county officials should be ashamed of this outhouse smelling facility. My father & brother were war vets. I don't think they would be proud.
  • Book it before the date is gone! Jennifer is amazing! She was extremely easy to get a hold of and answered all of my questions. When we met for our final run through of everything she had questions for me on things I hadn’t even thought of. She helped us get everything together with the other vendors and I can not thank her enough for everything she did. Our day ran perfectly and it was because of her. Plus let's not forget the beautiful backdrops of the lake and Art Museum we had for our ceremony and family pictures. The beautiful location and fantastic staff make this the perfect spot to have any wedding!!
  • Had my wedding here on 7/22/16 and it was MAGICAL. Jennifer was so helpful every step of the way and even helped with set up. The venue is gorgeous, we had the ceremony outside and the reception inside. The price is also reasonable and they (of course) give a military discount.
  • Excellent place to bring your family with veterans
  • Beautiful inside and out. Friendly people, clean restroom and exceptional exhibits.

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.
