“Fun Milwaukee History!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

I've recently visited this awesome Milwaukee Museum and loved it! There is so much great Milwaukee memorabilia to look at and so much history to experience. I recommend anyone from Milwaukee and anyone visiting Milwaukee to check this place out! They also have a fun gift shop!

“Girl Scout Brownie Workshop A+++!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

I brought 18 2nd grade Brownies for a tour and badge workshop. It was perfect! The tour guides were excellent and very informative. The girls loved the museum exhibits, they are nicely done. The workshop was fantastic and the girls got so much out of the visit. We will be back and recommend this to all Scout troops! Thanks, Chudnow Museum!

Thank you for choosing us to fulfill your Celebrating Community badge! It was so much fun showing and telling the girl scouts what life would have been like in the 20s and 30s. Crafts and songs just completed the experience.

“The "Cat's Pajamas"!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Listen, I’m going to level with ya, this is one keen joint! Ya don’t need a lot of dough to get in, just a few clams is all and you’ll have a swell time. It’s a classy joint but ya don’t have to get all dolled up. And if ya think that history is a snooze, you’re all wet, Kiddo. By the time ya jump in your jalopy, and head to the nearest gin mill, you’ll think that you was there, in Milwaukee, between the two big ones, that is WWI and WWII. The doll that gave us the tour was quite the deb! She was no Dumb Dora. She knew her onions. That Chudnow fella must have been quite a good egg, you know, a big shot but a regular Joe. Swell of him and his family to show off his personal collection of nifty stuff for the rest of us guys and dolls to enjoy. Because of another wing-ding we had to wiggle out of there. But we could have stayed and gave it another once over because they don’t give ya the bum’s rush. So don’t be a sap, check out the The Chudnow Museum of Yesteryear.

“Eye Candy for Collectors and History Fans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Had a great time at this delightful treasure recently. The museum is a real eyeful, interesting, fun, and educational. Some people collect old clocks, jewelry, Depression glass, egg cups, cookie jars, collector cars and lots of other things. It appears that Mr. Chudnow collected it all! Not to worry. His entire collection is not on display. What is exhibited is a real treat for all ages. Marketing and design students can find roots of today’s advertising origins and art of persuasion. History students/buffs will have a field day. I wonder what Mrs. Chudnow said each time her husband brought home more “stuff.” I’d recommend this for all age groups. Staff was great, too

Thank you for visiting! Mr. Chudnow first proposed a museum for his collection after he had filled the basement of their house with his hobby.
