House Museums

Milwaukee is fortunate to be home to world-renowned major museums. But if you’re looking for a more intimate look into the past – at how early residents of Milwaukee lived, the furnishings and works of art they collected – the city’s historic houses and house museums are waiting to be explored.

Check out the Milwaukee Museum Mile, a joint effort of five small museums that offers bundled and discounted admission.
