“Victorian elegance well preserved”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2012

The architecture and the furnishings are a great setting for the fascinating story of the Pabst family. The building is in good shape.It's easy to reach if you are in Milwaukee. The details of the building are delightful. Well worth the time.
