The Chudnow Museum of Yesteryear houses an extensive collection of Milwaukee memorabilia collected over the lifetime of the late, Avrum ‘Abe’ M. Chudnow, displayed in an historic house. Each room in the museum recreates a different shop or place in Milwaukee during the period between the World Wars. Some of the rooms currently exhibited: Speakeasy, Grafman Grocery Store, Saxe Theatre, Union Train Depot, Grand Avenue Toy Store, Bay View Drug Store, Augusta Hart Shoes, and Charlie’s Barber Shop. This period between the World Wars, 1914 to 1940, redefined Milwaukee and the United States as every aspect of life was altered.
