Create an itinerary including Pabst Mansion
Tour opulent Pabst Mansion to discover what life looked like from the top during the Gilded Age. Capt. Frederick Pabst, the founder of Pabst Brewing Co., built this 37-room, 14-fireplace palace between 1890 and 92. As you tour the mansion, which is now a museum, you can see large paintings that Capt. Pabst hung on the walls, as well as highly detailed and embellished furnishings that adorn many rooms. Take a general-admission tour to see the mansion's highlights, or consider pre-booking a grand tour for more thorough exploration of the home.

  • Pretty neat. Self guided tour is what you make it. Lots of info in the brochure but the docents are a wealth of info if you just ask! We saw floors one through three and were done in an hour though...

  • We weren’t sure what to expect, but we really enjoyed this tour! We were visiting Milwaukee for the first time and this was one of the top rated things to do. We weren’t sure if it would be worth $15/person for a guided tour, but it absolutely was! My wife and I were the only ones for our particular tour (10a on a Thursday), so we had a private tour. Beautiful house and it was cool to learn how a wealthy family lived in those times.
  • Honestly, you have to go and experience this enchanting Pabst Mansion. The tour guide was AWESOME! The history you get from this is worth going again to show off to Family and Friends . They have a cute gift shop as well, so make sure to take home a souvenir with you. My Fiance and I will be going back for Christmas. They decorate the mansion beautifully.
