When first built in 1895, the City Hall was the third-tallest building in the country thanks to it’s spectacular bell tower, which stands at 353 ft. tall. Although it no longer holds that title, City Hall continues to be one of Milwaukee’s most iconic landmarks to date. Designed by architect Henry C. Koch in the Flemish Renaissance Revival Style, the building was renovated and the bell tower restored in 2006.
Visitors will be able to explore the building’s 10-story rotunda, with a structure consisting of a basement and eight stories of city offices, as well as drop by the Mayor’s office. Ticketed tours of the bell tour are sold out.
Tours of the Council Chambers will be offered every 30 minutes beginning at 10 am and ending at 4:30 pm.
