No longer the major center of manufacturing in Milwaukee. Now just a memory of a more prosperous working blue collar city!

The cool thing about Milwaukee is that it looks urban, but not impossible to hit up all the sites. You can see the clock anywhere in downtown but seeing it closeup is pretty cool

2nd largest clock in the world just below a clock in Saudi Arabia. Nice to look at but definitely not a MUST see.

This is a very large four sided clock that can be seen from different places in the city. Neat for a photo op.

"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
