Visiting the spectacular China Lights exhibit was worth dealing with the throngs of eager attendees who also marveled at the creative display of clever and historically inspired scenes. There is signage to describe each area, but the downloadable app allowed more detail. There were dance and martial arts performers and music adding to the feel of the experience. Parking in remote lots was aided by shuttle bus transport. I would suggest that at the entrance gate that there could be separate lines for persons who had prepaid vouchers. All in all a delightful evening.

West Allis Farmers Market

Reviewed By ALnG_Photo - Milwaukee, Wisconsin

The West Allis farmers market is by far one of the best! This market is much more superior to the indoor produce section of the best Sendick's. The freshness and quality of the food being sold is some awesome stuff. The sellers are very friendly and happy to educate you on their products! From farm to your table!

Reviewed By 425hillary - Milwaukee, Wisconsin

The building itself is a work of art, especially since it's perched right on the lake shore of Lake Michigan! Visiting would be enjoyable just walking around the grounds! But then you have the added experience of going into the art museum! What a wonderful way to spend a day!!

Needed to catch up with some folks and they suggested Mos. Nice casual place for lunch with a pretty diverse lunch menu. Wish I could have had a beer since it looked like they had a nice variety of beers. But the food was very good, and I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Chudnow Museum of Yesteryear

A Milwaukee nonprofit dedicated to giving visitors a glimpse into Milwaukee life between the world wars with authentic items displayed in store settings. Handicap-accessible guided tours are offered at no additional charge, and there is free off-street parking behind the building.

I visited this fine museum with college friends while exploring Milwaukee. What a find! Mr. Chudnow's extensive collection of memorabilia transports the museum visitor back in time to the late 1800s through 1970. The rotating exhibits showcase everyday life in Milwaukee including a barbershop complete with a speakeasy from the Prohibition Era to a doctor's office, a movie theater, a grocery store and a pharmacy that legally dispensed drugs considered illegal today.

We enjoyed every minute of this tour guided by the museum director Steve. I highly recommend including a trip to the Chudnow Museum when you visit Milwaukee.

Arte Wine and Paint

Reviewed By piezees - Baltimore, Maryland

We went not having any idea what it would be like and wow what a blast... such a fun night. They have different options of classes. We went where we had an instructor and everyone painted the same thing. When arriving you can get a drink which is a bit pricey, then pick a seat already set up with canvas and paint. Sandy, our instructor, takes you through step by step. Some of the class stayed with the presented artwork and some went off in a direction modifying their painting. It was over before we knew it. They take a class picture with everyone holding their canvas before you leave. Well worth it !

We stopped in to the newer brewery with a group of friends. The beer was delicious, with some styles I have tried before and some that were more historic in style. The service was great. There was a food truck parked outside too. I am looking forward to stopping back when they release more beer on tap.

Harley-Davidson motorcycles bring heart-thumping adventure, life-changing freedom and a bit of rebellion into the lives of people around the world. But whether you were born to be wild - or mild - makes no difference at the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Much more than a nostalgia trip for motorcycle enthusiasts, the Museum offers a glimpse of American history and culture like you've never seen before - through the successes and trials of an iconic American company. Interactive, eye-catching exhibits present an unparalleled collection of legendary stories of our nation's last century. Located on 20 acres in downtown Milwaukee, the Museum offers free parking, Motor Bary & Restaurant, Cafe Racer, The Shop, park-like outdoor spaces, special event rentals, guided tours for group of 15 or more, and Steel Toe Tours of the Powertrain Operations, home of the big-twin engine.
