When we decided to visit doors open Milwaukee, city hall was the starting point so it was a no brainer. Wow, it is so ornate and beautiful. On our tour we were able to see the clock tower bell and get a tour of the building. We also met the mayor of the city on the tour. A true gem... More

We really would have liked to take the bell tower tour but they are so spaced apart that we didn't want to miss seeing more sites as we just moved to this city.

Visited the City Hall building during Doors Open Milwaukee weekend.

The architecture is wonderful and has the flavor of the Milwaukee that we are slowly but surely losing. The neighborhood character that drew me to Milwaukee years ago. I enjoy the building and the activity in it. Couldn't be more MIlwaukee.

I bartended across the street and watched how they repaired this building. The time and money was well spent. You will enjoy this beautiful building from many angles when traveling through downtown.

Saw this during Open Doors Milwaukee. The building is beautiful art deco interior. The view up from the lobby to the different open levels is striking.

Classic building. The atrium is as tall as the building. Go to the top floor and look down, really cool. Very interesting shaped building. If you can try to get a tour of the clock tower.

We took time to walk around downtown Milwaukee -- such a clean and attractive city! We found ourselves drawn to the elegant building which turned out to be the city hall. Milwaukee is lucky to have this stately structure.

Its exterior is a marvel and the inside offers some fascinating architectural details as well. It's easy to access if you are anywhere in downtown Milwaukee.
