Basilica of St. Josaphat reviews
We decided to go to mass here. Because of COVID we had to make reservations and the only one open was the 12 low mass. First we walked in and all the women and girls had their heads covered with lace.... more »
This is a must-see when visiting Milwaukee. It is breathtakingly beautiful, and the church provides historical information. They also have a small gift shop to purchase religious items. more »
Someone once told me that going to this Basilica is like going to Europe, without ever leaving Milwaukee. Now I know what they mean. It is absolutely gorgeous.I came in here and just wandered around. They have a nice little exhibit that talks about the history of the Basilica. However, apparently they have a tour Sunday after mass. I think it would be worth you doing a tour to hear more about the architecture and the history of this fantastic place.
A place to be inspired and awed. This place is gorgeous filled with beautiful paintings, stained glass, a dome with wonderful artwork and a magnificent atmosphere of peace. A place definitely worth visiting if you want to see lovely religious art and great architecture. And don't forget to buy a piece of chocolate to contribute with maintenance and restoration
