We visited the basilica just for the beauty, we aren't Catholic. The greeters were really friendly and gave a tour brochure. We were able to stroll at our leisure. Really beautiful to see. There is a parking lot in the back, walk around to the front.

This was some amazing architecture. What a beautiful building. When you enter the main church, your breathe will be taken away, I was in awe. You must check this out if you have the time.

Not being terribly religious, I am not the person to visit churches. Having said that, if for not other reason than to admire an architectural work of art, it is a must-see. The work that went into building this beautiful house of worship is difficult to imagine. I believe this is more beautiful than many churches I have seen in... More

I don't believe you will ever see such beauty as you will experience at The Basilica. This is also a thriving parish which is an institution in the community. The beautiful churches of Europe do not surpass this gem. You must visit!

A truly AWESOME place. Incredibly beautiful inside! Amazing reliquary in the crypt church- a whose who of Catholic saints! Main doors probably locked. Enter through the visitors center.

A must see for anyone who lives or visit's Milwaukee. Just breathtaking to see this beautiful basilica anywhere outside of Europe. Lovely stained glass windows and absolutely stunning architecture. Plus it is free.

A must see when in Milwaukee and it's free! Reminded us of the beautiful churches we have seen in Europe. Lovely stained glass windows and the ceiling dome is gorgeous. Go downstairs and read about the history of the basilica.

I am biased in favor of these kinds of places because I work in church ministry, but I was still blown away at the beauty and reverence that exudes from this structure. The entire experience was truly breath-taking, and if you are in the Milwaukee area, I would recommend that you put this basilica on your must-see list. Even from... More
