What to see in Milwaukee

Milwaukee Attractions


Wisconsin may not have a reputation for glamour, but there's plenty to see and do in Milwaukee for any visitor to this friendly city.

Milwaukee is home to a lot of architectural landmarks, ranging from the stunning St Josaphat Basilica and City Hall to the sleek and modern Milwaukee Art Museum. The Domes, huge glass structures in Mitchell Park, are just as stunning outside as they are inside, housing habitats from different ecosystems.

Aside from the distinctive Milwaukee Art Museum, here are a number of interesting museums in Milwaukee, including the Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum, and the Harley-Davidson Museum. Kids will love interactive attractions at the Public Museum (containing an IMAX theatre and planetarium), the Discovery World Museum at Pier Wisconsin, the Betty Brinn Children's Museum, and the Milwaukee County Zoo.

Milwaukee is also known as 'Brew City', and is home to both large-scale producers and local microbreweries in abundance. Miller-Coors Brewing Company and the Historic Pabst Brewery are perhaps the most recognisable, and offer tours. Smaller operations also offer tours and tastings on weekends, including the Sprecher Brewery, Lakefront Brewery, and the Great Lakes Distillery.
