Milwaukee City Hall FAMILY PASSPORT SITE

When built in 1895, City Hall was the third-tallest building in the country. Explore our most iconic landmark’s 10-story rotunda throughout the event. The Flemish Renaissance structure consists of a basement and eight stories of city offices.  Take a 30-minute, guided tour of the largest Common Council chambers in the U.S.

In addition, visitors can take a 45-minute guided tour of the City Hall bell tower. This rarely-offered climb up five steep, narrow flights of stairs leads to the “Solomon Juneau”, the 11-ton bell named after Milwaukee’s first mayor. Learn all about the bell and get a chance to ring it! A ticket is required – free and distributed first-come, first served at 9 a.m. on the day of the tour. Tour-goers must sign a waiver before taking the bell tower tour.  Capacity is 25 people per tour.  Meet in the City Hall rotunda on the hour from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Not handicap accessible. Please see the Public Tours page for more information.
