I love Pabst!! Everyone that knows me will say so, but this taught great history of the man, his life, as well as history of the time

“Very Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

This mansion is worth the visit. It is such a shame that other mansions on the street were destroyed but at least this one was saved! Josh was our guide and excellent. We could have listened to him all day. His knowledge was vast and spoke in an exciting interesting manner. It was obvious that he loved where he worked and wanted to share that love with his "guests".

“Interesting tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We were the only two people on the tour on this summer morning, so we got a very in-depth, personal tour. Our guide (I think her name was Pat) shared all the little details about the mansion and the Pabst family, so that when we left, we really felt like we understood a bit about both. As native Milwaukeeans, I am sorry it took us this long to see this beautiful home, but I am glad we finally did. It was a fascinating glimpse into the past and well worth the time and the modest fee.

“Too small for attraction place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

We were so surprised and disappointed to find the mansion is so small and decided not to join the tour even the fee is not that expensive.

“Amazing place, amazing story”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

We had just arrived from UK and this was first place we chose to visit.
We were totally amazed at the splendour of the building outside and even more so the restoration that has been carried out so far on a large proportion of the interior.
The most amazing part of the story, told with great enthusiasm and full of detail by our excellent volunteer guide Barb, was how the building has been so little modified over the years that the restoration, although quite difficult and painstaking in part, is absolutely magnificent and the museum deserves all the support it can get from lots of visitors willing to learn of its history. Their support by visiting will help raise more funds to allow the continuance of the projects returning the remaining parts of the premises to as near the original format and furnishings that they have fortunately been able to ascertain.
