A "must see" in Milwaukee. Rivals Rome. You won't believe your eyes! FREE! A donation would be nice. You have to see it to believe it.

In a quick stop, we decided to check out this Basilica. It was worth the stop. It was nice to sit in the chapel while I read the history of the church on my phone. There was no crowd and a nice parking lot to park in. The stained glass is very pretty, and the alter was beautiful.

So beautiful. Difficult to take in all the beauty in a short time. Plan enough time to be able to catch your breath and explore.

Historic ties to Chicago in the building materials and great craftsmanship in this beautiful church. Happened to come in just after a service and saw it with the lights on. Worth the visit.

Spectacular basilica. The main sanctuary and seating area is absolutely one of the most stunning views ever. So much to see and for those wanting to study everything, it would take awhile. Lower worship area is also gorgeous, with a nicely-done side display of artifacts - the most I've personally seen in one place. Nice gift shop with self-guided tour... More

Breathtakingly beautiful. Daily Mass in a chapel downstairs was wonderful. Lovely ladies tend to the little gift shop.

Amazing architecture and breathtaking art make this truly a house of God: tabernaculum Dei. Named for St Josephat, the Archbishop of the kingdom of Poland in the early 1600s and martyr for unity between Catholic and Orthodox Churches. It was projected on the plan of St Peters in Rome! After only 3 years of sacrifice, labor and faith on behalf... More
