Streets of Old Milwaukee

Milwaukee
  • Experience the turn of the 19th century, when Milwaukee's atmosphere was that of exuberance and prosperity. The city's ornate "gingerbread" architecture, cream city brick, gas streetlights and plush interiors are recreated to capture the atmosphere of this period.

Permanent exhibit at the museum. Visit Milwaukee around the turn-of-the-century - roughly the 1880's to just prior to World War I. Buildings are represented at about three-quarters size or less. The streets are constructed from three different styles of paving: granite blocks originally from Buffalo Street, red bricks, and cedar blocks.
