Chudnow Museum of Yesteryear

Originally built as a single family in 1869 for the Daniel Schultz, the style is a common Milwaukee Italiante built out of the area’s famous cream city brick. Albert Seeboth purchased the home in 1906 and remodeled it with an additional front porch and an entire third floor in the German Revival style. Later usage as Dr. Eisenberg’s clinic and Avrum Chudnow’s offices preserved much of the home’s original interior. Remodeling during construction of the museum restored and preserved the woodwork, room layout and many interesting features.

Original Milwaukee and Midwest Americana items from WWI to WWII are displayed in creative, immersive exhibits within the building. Air-conditioned indoor exhibits include an ice cream pavilion, grocery store, pharmacy, movie theater and secret speakeasy. Outdoor features include two 1930 vehicles in a garage workshop environment. New exhibits and items every year. Scavenger hunt, working vintage phones, unique movies, sound buttons and more interactive features for all ages. Brat fry, snacks, ice cream, sodas, gift shop & larger garage sale available. Some off-street parking available.
