We are located at the Main Entrance Atrium of the Shops of Grand Ave where Old World 3rd Street meets Wisconsin Ave.

Provide proof of your admission purchase to the Visitor Assistant at the entrance, and you will be on your way to seeing and tasting Milwaukee Brewing History!

Keep your receipt to show proof of purchase to your bartender as well as for you to also visit our parent site the Milwaukee County Historical Society a short 3 blocks down Old World Third Street!

Head on down to the Milwaukee Beer Bar to taste and choose your included tap beer or craft soda, and then head on in to the Museum, either behind the bar through the saloon style doors, or where you entered near the Visitor Assistant, and up the ramp. You may of course choose to explore the Museum before your beer or soda, and may redeem this at any time during your visit, just show proof of admission purchase to your bartender.

The self-guided tour time of the Museum is decided by your own interest, anywhere from 30 minutes to skim read the provided information on the panels to 90 minutes to read all of the intriguing Milwaukee Brewing History.
