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.
