If you like old architecture and appreciate craftsmanship that no longer exists, this is worth a visit. Not expensive for the tour.

We went to the Pabst Mansion at Christmas time and the decorations were magnificent. It is conveniently located and well worth the visit.

Hard to get to, as it was construction time on the main route. Our guide was a retired priest, and knew his history of the Pabst family and the house. Restoring a mansion like this is hard, but they are doing a wonderful job with...More

It has been mostly restored to its former glory and the remaining work continues at a high standard. If you've done other homes by other industrialists, this one's kind of dull and the guided tour takes way too long. If you love old homes, then...More

We are sorry that you found our tour not interesting and dull, but are happy that you appreciated the house restoration. We feel fortunate that this gem has survived over 125 years, 95% of the original grand homes on this street are gone.

We had a great guide named DEE. She grew up near the mansion and really personalized the tour. It was much more interesting than I expected it to be.

We had an informative tour guide (I believe her name was Carolyn) who took us through the house. Interesting history of the family, and brewing in Milwaukee. Well worth the price and spending some time touring!

There is a small parking area around the mansion and then there is a lot across the street. Plenty of parking options.
