This event is no longer on sale.

Saturday May 6

10:00 AM  –  12:00 PM

Participants must provide their own transportation to the site. 

The group will meet at  Milwaukee Soldiers’ Home | Veteran Housing, 515 N General Mitchell Blvd, Milwaukee, WI 53214 at 10:00 am. 

The Civil War Museum, in collaboration with volunteers from the Milwaukee Preservation Alliance, is excited to offer a walking tour of the buildings and grounds of the newly rehabbed Milwaukee Soldier's Home. Highlights of the tour include the interior of Old Main and the building's history exhibit as well as exterior stops at the Home's historic Theater, Church, Library, and Cemetary. Our guides will also concentrate on the personal stories of the Civil War veterans who made the Soldier's Home their home after the war. 

A portion of the proceeds from the tour will be donated to the Milwaukee Preservation Alliance. 

Online sales end two days prior to class due to supply needs or attendee counts for the instructors, please call the Museums (262-653-4140) to inquire if registrations are still available.
