MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN INFORMATION AND ATTRACTIONS
Milwaukee Art Museum
The Milwaukee Art Museum had its origin in two institutions, the Layton Art Gallery , which was established in 1888, and the Milwaukee Art Institute, founded in the early 1900s. These two institutions joined forces in 1957 to form the private, nonprofit Milwaukee Art Center (now the Milwaukee Art Museum), and moved to its current lakefront location.
Old World Third Street
Located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on 3rd Street, between Wisconsin Av and Juneau. An extraordinary combination of distinctive shops, charming ethnic cateries, timeless architecture and a genuine "Old World" feel is awaiting you on Milwaukee's Old World Third Street. The three block area, registered as a historic landmark zone, is unparalleled in historical authenticity, not to mention the delicious food, drink and unique treasures found here.
In 1892, the Flemish Renaissance Revival Mansion of Captain Frederick Pabst, world famous beer baron, accomplished sea captain, real estate developer, philanthropist and patron of the arts, was completed. From the day the house was inhabited, it was considered the jewel of Milwaukee's famous avenue of mansions called Grand Avenue and represented the epitome of America's Gilded Age Splendor in Milwaukee.
The Basilica of Saint Josaphat
A Milwaukee landmark and a Minor Basilica created by Pope Pius XI in 1929 (the third church so honored in the USA). It fulfilled the necessary characteristics required by the Church to be so designated. Namely: it is a place of pilgrimage and special devotion, it is a center of historic significance for the Faith, and it is architecturally and artistically qualified for such an honor. Patterned after St. Peter's in Rome, it has all the elements of a classical Romanesque basilica.
The Milwaukee County Zoo is a serene home to more than 2,000 mammals, birds, fish, amphibians and reptiles with more than 350 species represented. However, the Zoo has become more than that to visitors. It is a site for workshops, holiday celebrations, summer concerts and food festivals.
Milwaukee Brewers Baseball
The home of the Major League Baseball's Milwaukee Brewers. Games are held at Miller Park. Miller Park is a traditional ballpark reflecting local architecture, but has a retractable dome roof to protect against the cool weather in Wisconsin during the spring and fall. The ballpark is located in what used to be the center field parking lot of Milwaukee County Stadium, the Brewers' former home field.
