  • Pabst Mansion
    Completed in 1892 as the private home of the Pabst family, Pabst Mansion stands as the last bastion of more than 80 mansions built for Milwaukee’s elite during a booming, bygone era. Since its construction, the estate has housed archbishops, priests, and sisters and was saved from near-demolition during the 1970s. The Flemish-Renaissance-Revival home has since been awarded a place on the National Register of Historic Places for its bounty of architectural intricacies. Today, on-staff docents conduct a range of tours for public groups, private parties, school groups, and well-behaved rugby teams through the fortress of halls, opulent rooms, and verdant grounds, each restored to their original condition. The Pabst Mansion’s impressive art collection includes works from the 1640s through the 1900s by artists such as William-Adolphe Bouguereau, Gaetano Trentanove, and Eugene Joseph Verboeckhoven. The emporium of excess also features Pabst Beer Pavilion, the pavilion built for the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, and the glass-covered conservatory where tropical plants and beer trees continue to flourish. The mansion gift shop holds classic Pabst drinkware and memorabilia as well as antique photos, books, and former employees' original finger paintings.

  • Charles Allis Art Museum
    It's rare for museums to have cozy dining rooms, but the Charles Allis Art Museum wasn't always a museum. Earlier in the 20th century, it was businessman and arts patron Charles Allis's Tudor-style mansion. Allis bequeathed it to the public along with his massive art collection, though, and nowadays, visitors can stop by to see pieces that span 2,000 years. Some highlights? Works by Winslow Homer, Classic antiquities, a large collection of Asian ceramics, plus rotating exhibits by local Wisconsin artists. The Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum nestles in a historic mansion, too, albeit a different one. This one was built in the likeness of an Italian Renaissance villa in 1923, by architect David Adler. Its art spans a smaller period, from the 15th century through to the 18th. Visitors can browse wrought-iron work by Cyril Colnik, and explore a formal, outdoor Renaissance garden.

  • Betty Brinn Children's Museum
    Designed for kids 10 and under, these exhibits encourage learning through creative, open-ended play. In kid-sized, real-world settings, kids take on grown-up roles, such as the mechanic in an auto shop, a newscaster in a TV studio, and a customer in a grocery shop.

  • Jewish Museum Milwaukee
    Reservations/Appointments: Not offered Established: 2008 Staff Size: 2–10 people Parking: Parking lot Handicap Accessible: Yes Recommended Age Group: All Ages Pro Tip: If you call in advance, we can get a docent for your tour. Most Popular Attraction/Offering: Exhibits on Golda Meir and Jews Who Rock Q&A with Ellie Gettinger, Education Director What is the one feature of your business that you're most proud of? Jewish Museum Milwaukee has beautiful engaging displays, including the only Marc Chagall tapestry in Milwaukee. This is an epic piece—it's 14'x19') and provides perspective on Jewish history. In addition, our changing exhibits enliven the understanding of the Jewish experience. Every three months, JMM has a totally new display to explore. Have you ever been a patron of your own business? If so, what was the most enjoyable part? I love touring the Museum. There are so many interesting and unique stories that show the development of the city of Milwaukee. There is a lot of information, but the museum's size makes it easy to get through in an hour or two. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? Right now our changing exhibit is Stitching History from the Holocaust (through February 28)— the museum's largest exhibit to date. The exhibit details the experience of Paul and Hedy Strnad, a woman who sent eight designs to Milwaukee in the hopes of immigrating.

  • Discovery World
    In this science and technology museum, children get to see how science touches so many aspects of their lives. For example, in Les Paul’s House of Sound they learn how the famed guitar’s shape contributes to its unique sound, while in the Great Lakes exhibit, visitors make it rain (literally), over a scale-model of Lake Huron.
