We were visting our doughter at Marquette University and since this Chapel are at the Campus, we visitied it. Small and nice, very pretty. I believe it should be seen at spring time with all the flowers around.

Happened upon the chapel while browsing TripAdvisor for what to see in Milwaukee and so glad I did! Beautiful old building from the 1400’s France in the middle of a University-two of my favorite things to visit!! Worth a visit if you’re nearby.

If you have the chance, I’d highly recommend a visit to this medieval chapel. Just learning about its history before arriving on the Marquette campus is fascinating.

It's very pretty, and in a pretty setting. If you're a religious history buff it's a must see for your trip to Milwaukee. The only drawback is access since it's in the middle of the Marquette University campus, but if you can make the walk...More

The chapel was historic, and the docent was very informative. The landscape outside is beautiful also. Worth a quick visit if you like this kind of thing.

We loved our stop at St. Joan of Arc Chapel right in the middle of campus. The guide was great and told us all about the building and the two times in was dismantled and moved (France to NY, then NY to Milwaukee).

There is no admission price. It is on the campus of a college and there was no charge. The docent did not stay to talk to my daughter and I so we did not donate anything.
