How cool is it to have this chapel in downtown Milwaukee!!!??? It is somewhat humble, but for history buffs ( or especially religious history buffs) this is a must see!

Lovely little church on the Marquette campus. Website has the history if interested. Attended Mass and felt very peaceful and inviting. Do look at the outside as well - the bricks were hand laid upon reconstruction. The inside is a must-see, with original architecture and pieces.

Magnificent building from the outside, set back on the site of the university. Unfortunately, we arrived too late to be able to visit it inside.

The chapel is located a short walk from Gesu on the Marquette University campus and definitely worth taking some time to visit. As the chapel is located behind other buildings, there is no immediate parking however what does one expect as this is downtown in a major city so a short walk should not be a big deal. It is...

Yeah, that seems kind of incongruous, doesn't it. But here's the deal - as you can find from Marquette University's website - this small, stone chapel was decaying in France and brought stone by stone to Long Island in the 1920's and then somehow dismantled again and reassembled on Marquette University's campus. It is a treasure and is usually open... More

This is an intriguing historical piece that was disassembled in France and shipped here to be reassembled on what is now the Marquette campus. This chapel is free to tour and a charming spot to peak into if you find yourself near Marquette University in the downtown area.

We were not able to go inside the building - it appears it is only open at limited times. It is about a 10 to 15 minutes visit and if you are in the area/vicinity it is worth the quick stop. Parking is not convenient and it will take you at least 10 to 15 minutes to walk depending where... More

This adorable chapel, on the grounds of Marquette University, was moved to Milwaukee in 1965. It is beautifully displayed and highlighted by meticulously attended grounds near the statue of Marquette. Unfortunately, the chapel was closed when we visited so we were not able to see the interior.

This lovely chapel sits in the heart of the Marquette campus. It is open to the public & free. Once you enter, you can feel as though you have stepped back in the Middle Ages.

Peaceful, tiny chapel imported from France in the center of the great urban Marquette campus. Worth a visit to this corner of the city.
