Milwaukee is undoubtedly the jovial land of beer and cheese (and brats, bowling and The Brewers, for that matter), but it’s also a center for world-class art, architecture, culture and innovation. Visit a 15th century French chapel, and a 425 million-year-old tropical reef. Throw a turkey at the nation’s oldest sanctioned bowling alley. Watch an art museum flap its wings, or tour an urban cheese factory to find out why cheese curds squeak. Discover 111 unexpected treasures in Milwaukee.
