“Great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

This is a great local museum! It is super interactive and so much fun! It's definitely something to be proud of if you're from the area and a must-see if you're from out of town! I recently took a group of 10th graders for a presentation/discussion on the rise and fall of the KKK in Milwaukee. They were very engaged and learned more than they expected to because they "don't even like history!" The events are extremely affordable to attend and they will not disappoint! I have visited with my husband before as well and he loved it!

Thank you for visiting with students from your high school class. Historians do what they do because they love it and it has really come through in our lecture series.

I've recently visited this awesome Milwaukee Museum and loved it! There is so much great Milwaukee memorabilia to look at and so much history to experience. I recommend anyone from Milwaukee and anyone visiting Milwaukee to check this place out! They also have a fun gift shop!

“Girl Scout Brownie Workshop A+++!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

I brought 18 2nd grade Brownies for a tour and badge workshop. It was perfect! The tour guides were excellent and very informative. The girls loved the museum exhibits, they are nicely done. The workshop was fantastic and the girls got so much out of the visit. We will be back and recommend this to all Scout troops! Thanks, Chudnow Museum!

Thank you for choosing us to fulfill your Celebrating Community badge! It was so much fun showing and telling the girl scouts what life would have been like in the 20s and 30s. Crafts and songs just completed the experience.

“The "Cat's Pajamas"!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Listen, I’m going to level with ya, this is one keen joint! Ya don’t need a lot of dough to get in, just a few clams is all and you’ll have a swell time. It’s a classy joint but ya don’t have to get all dolled up. And if ya think that history is a snooze, you’re all wet, Kiddo. By the time ya jump in your jalopy, and head to the nearest gin mill, you’ll think that you was there, in Milwaukee, between the two big ones, that is WWI and WWII. The doll that gave us the tour was quite the deb! She was no Dumb Dora. She knew her onions. That Chudnow fella must have been quite a good egg, you know, a big shot but a regular Joe. Swell of him and his family to show off his personal collection of nifty stuff for the rest of us guys and dolls to enjoy. Because of another wing-ding we had to wiggle out of there. But we could have stayed and gave it another once over because they don’t give ya the bum’s rush. So don’t be a sap, check out the The Chudnow Museum of Yesteryear.
