This is a super neat building and we needed somewhere to go before our show and thought we could spend half hour here. There is so much potential compared to what they have. The bookstore had a nice selection and there was a little outdated...More

Gave a review of 2 instead of 1 simply because the woman gave us our money back. Beautiful building for weddings....which is why the entire building was mostly empty. Apparently they only display a few items at a time so that they can put it...More

This was my favorite attraction to visit this time. The music history exhibit is amazing. The building is fabulous. The staff were incredibly knowledgeable. There were two floors of exhibit and two bank vaults to look inside.

The Brew City MKE exhibition is very interesting - esp. if you're a beer lover but also if you're a history buff. Such rich heritage comes from several area families. It's not a huge exhibition but the Society does a good job of mixing historical...More

This is an important venue in our city. It has compiled many documents from many organizations and it is the first place for research of history of everything related to the city. It also is in an interesting, well preserved building.

The building is beautiful inside & outside. It is a lovely wedding venue, but at the cost of emptying the museum of almost all displays. We tried to spend an hour here with an out of town guest but that was really stretching it. I...More
