War Memorial Center reviews
Great weather definitely a plus but the Fitch Plaza was a wonderful lakeside venue for wedding. Picturesque!!! The environment was perfect for a fun & private event.

Milwaukee's Finest....Museum! place all in all and a great museum. Nice connection of contemporary art work. Strong permanent collection and goods traveling exhibits. Modern collection is good. Interesting building design that allows light in which can be precious in this part of the world. Good giftshop and easy accessibility throughout the facilities. The building is right on the water which makes it a bit remote to get to...but dramatic once you are there. The museum is nearby other civic venues. Make sure to check hours and protocols due to coronavirus considerations.
The War Memorial is important to me as a veteran and also for other reasons. I was homeless from June 2003 until Dec 2015 and when I "camped" downtown(esp in the colder months)I used to warm-up very early mornings after rising up from my "camp" near the lakefront. Now I am no longer homeless and don`t stay by the lakefront so if I visit the W.M. it is as a tourist only. The new displays in the gallery are very poignant and meaningful! God bless the W.M. and all it means and for giving me the "extra" help when I needed it.
