About these ratings

This mansion -- the former home of Captain Frederick Pabst (of beer fame) -- was just one of a few dozen fancy homes that lined what was then known as "Grand Avenue" (so named for its wealthy residents and their grand homes). Built in 1892, the home became a bastion for the luxe life. And while touring the century-old mansion today, tourists will get to learn about the Pabst family history as well as Milwaukee's. They might just pick up a souvenir or two as well.

One Yelp.com user who is well-acquainted with Pabst Blue Ribbon beer says: "The gift shop is even better [than the museum] -- you can buy earrings made out of PBR caps for your hipster friends, as well as … super Broheim shirts with Pabst emblazoned on them."

You'll find the mansion along West Wisconsin Avenue and nearby Marquette University. Open daily, the house opens from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is usually about $9 for adults; $8 for seniors and students; $5 for kids ages six through 17. For more information, visit the website.
