The Hare Brained Road Trip – Pabst Mansion

After spending our morning at the Milwaukee Public Museum we walked to the Pabst Mansion for a tour. The walk is not quite a mile and through the Marquette University campus for the most part.   I had purchased a Groupon for two adult tours for $10.  I had to pay for Daughters visit when we arrived.  Normal prices are children 6-17 are $5 and adults are $9.   $15 for a tour for 3 sounded like a good way to spend the afternoon with my Groupon.


There is no photography allowed inside the mansion. The website here has some great photos of the interior.

The Pabst Mansion was completed in 1892 and the family descendants sold the house in 1908 to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese.  The house has been open to the public since 1978 and I would recommend any one who appreciates old homes visit the Pabst.  The woodwork is outstanding and I enjoyed the little conservatory.

We were a little early for the next tour so we relaxed under the big shade tree while we waited.  Regular tours are offered on the hour Mon – Sat from 10-3pm and Sunday from 12-3pm. The mansion closes at 4pm.
