“Real Milwaukee History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

This is a step back into the founding days of Milwaukee.  Too bad parts of the mansion have been altered from the original, but it still presents an accurate and beautiful picture of life in the city in the times of the "beer barons".

A splendid home. Knowledgeable docent. An important piece of Milwaukee history and glimpse into the history of the times. Very glad I went.

“Hidden secret in Milwaukee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

The Pabst Mansion is not far from downtown Milwaukee. Fun to think about the Pabst Brewing family that lived here. Wonderful volunteers give tours. Beautifully restored. It is not real large, but worth seeing.
