You'll learn a lot and spend some time inside a beautiful house. The restoration work is not complete, but if anything, that made the restoration that has been done more impressive. Also, I recommend going on the first tour of the day (10 a.m.) and...More

A beautiful home in the middle of downtown Milwaukee, you'll definitely want to add this tour when you're in town! The tour takes approximately 90 minutes as you view and explore about 20 of the 66 rooms in this 125+ year old Mansion built by...More

Thanks for the nice review, I never counted all the rooms and you do see about 20, but the 66 might be high for the basement, attic and staff area. Maybe I should count them myself sometime? The 20 rooms you saw are the rooms...More

We enjoyed this on a rainy day, was a very interesting peek into Milwaukee's history. The docents knew how to keep you moving so it didn't become boring.

This place was very beautiful. I learned a lot throughout this tour. At first, I didn't know what I was getting myself into. However, who doesn't want to go see a mansion? The architecture is amazing, I definitely recommend this to others.

Went with an out of town friend. Wanted to give them a good history of Milwaukee, and I ended up learning quite a bit as well. I'd recommend the mansion for anyone curious about beer, Milwaukee, or the house itself.
