The Pabst Mansion is a little gem right outside of downtown Milwaukee, near Marquette University, It's a nice historic house, with some interesting features, and gives you good insight into the town, and its beer/brewing culture. Worth a stop. Tour takes about 60-90 minutes,

There are stairs, I think there may be an elevator to access the other floors but can’t remember you could call the mansion and I’m sure they would help you out with more information.

There is a small parking area around the mansion and then there is a lot across the street. Plenty of parking options.
