Milwaukee is a city in Wisconsin famed for its association with beer brewing, motorcycles, museums and historical sites, plus arts and cultural institutions and family entertainment. Many of the breweries, like Lakefront Brewery, offer both brewpubs and tours to learn about how beer is made, and locales like the Pabst Mansion allow you to see how some of the earliest big beer brewers live and develop their craft. The Milwaukee Art Museum and Milwaukee Public Museum are state-of-the-art facilities that showcase art, architecture, sculpture and artefacts.

At the Harley-Davidson Museum, you’ll explore the past of the iconic motorcycle brand from its earliest days through the modern era. The Milwaukee County Zoo showcases native and exotic animals in an 80-hectare wildlife park, featuring a historical carousel. At Discovery Word, kids can get hands-on with exhibits in science, technology, engineering and math, learning while playing. If you’re a sports fan, the storied Milwaukee Brewers play at American Family Field.
