We were visiting Illinois for a wedding, and decided to make a quick trip to Milwaukee. We looked up things to do, and the Pabst Mansion popped up. It was worth the visit. The history is awesome, and the house is gorgeous. I was shocked to discover the house is 20,000 square feet, because it doesn't look that big on the outside. Our docent was very friendly and knowledgeable of the Pabst history. She really seemed to love what she was doing, which made it that much more enjoyable.
The entry fee was very reasonable, at $9 for adults. If you appreciate history and ornate architecture, you will enjoy this hour long tour.
