2000 W. Wisconsin Avenue, Milwaukee Wisconsin 53233
In 1892, the Flemish Renaissance Mansion of Captain Frederick Pabst was finished, and was considered the jewel of Milwaukee's famous avenue of mansions called the Grand Avenue. At the time of its completion Captain Pabst was 57 years old and was an accomplished sea captain, beer baron, real estate developer, philanthropist and patron of the arts.
The Pabst Mansion is a testament to his success, his love of life and his German heritage. Boasting 37 rooms, 12 baths and 14 fireplaces, the Mansion helped make the 1890's the "Pabst Decade" in Milwaukee.
The Mansion is open daily excluding major holidays. All tours are guided and start on the hour. Special hours and self-guided tours apply during the Mansion's nationally recognized Victorian holiday celebration.
