No need to travel abroad to experience a cathedral or basilica as magnificent as the Basilica of St. Josephat. The exterior structure is impressive , but the interior is nothing short of breathtaking. Tour during Christmastime for an exceptional experience.

This church is a must for anyone visiting Milwaukee. Not only is it historic, but it is as beautiful as any European church!

I've been attending masses here for years, and every time is wonderful. The space just feels holy. I had told my family about it for months before I finally brought them, and, when I did, their jaws hit the floor when looking at the gorgeous space!

One does not have to attend mass as the Basilica is open to the public for the majority of the week. Tours are rare but one is free to walk around the church (please be respectful near the altar area). The architecture and art is wonderful and mirrors if not challenges anything famous from Europe, whether the Vatican or Poland... More

I never knew about this Basilica, however we try to attend Mass at different places when we are on vacation. This is a beautiful and historic Church. Well worth the visit.

Stunning place with gorgeous architecture. Very well kept inside and decorated for the Christmas season. There was a small gift shop and museum. Very happy we visited.

Wonderful basilica, would have loved to have heard The Messiah here! The choir and orchestra were glorious on Christmas Eve, and the lighting of the basilica very dramatic during the Mass. An amazing experience,

Went for a choir concert. Nice acoustics. Be prepared for the steps and not much parking so plan ahead if you go.
