I recently moved back to the city where I grew up after an absence of 37 years, with occasional visits to my parents. The day after July 4th Weekend, I had some extra time after setting up a local bank account, and City Hall was right across the street, so, since I have always been interested in architecture and city...

What a remarkable building. I am so happy that it has been preserved. The view of it as you approach is nothing short of mesmerizing. I took photos for blocks until we finally reached it. Architecturally it is impressive with the large arches and stonework. Its position in the area draws your eye to it. Good job Milwaukee for keeping... More

Untapped Tours of Milwaukee met here, and we went inside (can just walk in on your own - it's a public building). The building is amazing, with a large open atrium and beautiful ironwork. Very impressive. I wouldn't have known about it except for the tour.

Tour started with a look inside... interesting to note that at one time there was netting below the dome for the jumpers.

On the way to the Italian market, I saw the city hall which is really unique and narrow I couldn't go in there because it was closed due to the holiday but I'm thinking parking may be tough

Cool building - take the tour of the inside, and if you can, catch a spot on the Bell Tower tour. Very fun! Great view! (Actually a small bunch of us got to go up farther than that -- all the way up to the little tower with the flag on top. That was pretty amazing, but I don't think... More

Took a wonderful tour of historical City Hall. Fascinating story behind this building. We were even treated to tour the steeples and giant bell tower. Got as far as the Mayor's office. Again, well worth taking this tour when in Milwaukee.

If you like to view various aspects of Architecture. It is worth a look inside and out. At the time I was there they were doing outside work.
