These 7 Unique Places In Milwaukee Are An Absolute Must-See And Soon
There are so many things to do in Milwaukee that it can be hard to choose. However, some places bring about their own quirks and charms that are simply unforgettable. From unique museums to a statue of an old star, we’ve found seven of the most unique attractions in Milwaukee that cannot be passed up!
1. Chudnow Museum of Yesteryear
This hidden Milwaukee gem is
a unique little museum
within an old neighborhood house. The little-known spot is actually a non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public about the history of Milwaukee during the World Wars and displays items from the 1910s-1940s. This amazing museum shows collections from all walks of Milwaukee's past. It's truly a sight to be seen!
You can find this museum at 839 N. 11th St., Milwaukee.
For a truly unique dining experience, SafeHouse is your go to. If you've ever felt like taking up a life of espionage, but didn't want the danger of dodging bullets all day, this restaurant will give you the best of both worlds. Be prepared though, you'll need to know the secret password to get in!
It's no secret that this spy restaurant is located at 779 N. Front St., Milwaukee.
3. Mary Nohl's Art Environment
The "Witch's House," as some call, it is actually an
amazing work of art by Mary Nohl
. This interesting house is a National Registered Landmark, and although there is currently no tours offered, it's a fascinating sight to see from the sidewalk. This eclectic home in Fox Point has been watched, loved, and talked about for decades, and we hope it continues for many more.
This incredible art environment is located just outside of Milwaukee at 7328 N. Beach Rd., Fox Point.
4. Shakers Cigar Bar
Shakers Cigar Bar is the only licensed cigar bar in the city and well-known for their hand-rolled cigars and impressive drink list. However, those aren’t the only spirits you can find at this haunted spot. This unique cigar bar might have
the creepiest history
of any restaurant in the city. They offer ghost tours for inquiring minds!
You can find Shakers Cigar Bar at 422 S. 2nd St., Milwaukee.
5. Bronze Fonz
Milwaukeeans are generally pretty happy folks, but to prove it, we installed a bronze statue of The Fonz from the old TV show
Happy Days on our River Walk. The Bronze Fonz is a beloved addition that will light up anyone's face (and provide endless photo-ops). Ayy!
You'll find this friendly guy on Milwaukee's River Walk.
6. Holler House
Milwaukee's oldest bowling alley
and the oldest functioning bowling alley in the country! Milwaukeeans are truly alley cats, and even if you're not from here you'll love to soak up the history of this old alley.
Holler House is located at 2042 W. Lincoln Ave., Milwaukee.
7. Discovery World
This unique and beautiful hands-on science and technology museum is fun for the whole family. They offer an aquarium, a Tall Ship, and many interactive exhibits. Whether you want to learn about local science, like how we keep our Great Lakes clean, or something to inspire your little one to be a true innovator, this lakefront attraction is the place to be.
Experience science first hand at Discovery World which is located at 500 N. Harbor Dr., Milwaukee.
