Looking for something to do on a Saturday afternoon in Milwaukee, we walked three blocks from our hotel to the Pabst Mansion. The only way to see the home of the former beer baron is by guided tour, which starts every hour on the hour. Our docent, Dan Luedtke, had volumes of family and property history at his command. It was like walking into the turn-of-the-19th-century midwest. His descriptions of various family activities and their connection to the community painted a colorful picture. I almost felt guilty for not asking questions, which he solicited continually. The home itself was gorgeous, with opulent details in every space. The $9 per person admission was a tiny bit pricy, but by the end we felt we got our money's worth.
