Chudnow is a small museum; just a single mid-sized two story house. Your visit starts with free parking behind the building. When you enter, you will be welcomed by a friendly admission taker that will explain the Chudnow to you. The museum is a well...More

We're in a quieter area of the downtown and just enough away from Marquette University and other developments that our 150 year-old building wasn't demolished. Thank you for spending some time with you and we are glad it was worth your visit!

This museum appeals to folks of a 'certain' age as it features mementos up to WWII. Young folks might not appreciate a trip down nostalgia lane, but we found it interesting. There is free parking in back.

I believe our most enthusiastic visitors are those of a seasoned age, and then the really young children who have only seen such items in movies or t.v. shows. Glad you found the free parking and thanks for your feedback.
