"Up to the highest hights, up to the atmosphere, oh let's go fly a kite." It would be a great place to do so. There are ladders involved but I usually see the clock tower from the highway. My husband currently works there. Please see old movies for $400, Alex.

This is a must see landmark. If you are driving in from the south heading to Downtown Milwaukee as you approach National Ave , look to your right and you will see the biggest four sided clock in the world. Enjoy the view.

I made a point to drive by the Allen-Bradley Company Clock last time I was in Milwaukee. Wish they had tours.

The Rockwell Automation (Formerly Allen-Bradley) is the largest four faced clock in the world (Yes it is larger than Big Ben in London). It can be see from the freeway and if you have 10 - 15 minutes to spare, just exit the freeway and do a quick side trip. It is an icon for Milwaukee. Unfortunately, no public tours.

Its not open for tours, so no reason to stop. Easily seen from freeway or coming from Comedysportz. Looked nice lighted up but it is still just a clock even if you understand its history

Best seen from the freeway at night, when it's lit. Would be interesting to tour (if tours are even available), but otherwise not worth exiting the freeway for.

As a child, I prided myself on knowing that the original was "the largest 4 sided, lit-up clock in the world" and advising everyone in the car of that fact whenever we drove near! It is now the 2nd largest, but still very neat! After moving away years ago, seeing if brings back childhood memories :-}

This is a drive-by. If you're on the highway driving toward downtown Milwaukee and you see a huge 4-sided clock, you'll probably say "Wow! Look at that!" Can't miss it. And now you'll know the name of it and why it's unique.

Was on top of the 'Clock' for a hospitality event. Full windows offering and a 360 view of MKE. We had a tour of the clock workings (including gun shot holes in the face of the clock). Long story short, if you get a chance, get in that room - AND enjoy the historical experience.
