The Charles Allis Art Museum was originally the home of Charles Allis, former president of the Allis-Chalmers Corporation and his wife Sarah. Very active in the Milwaukee community and with keen collecting instincts, the couple amassed a unique art collection that was generously bequeathed to the public along with the more home to "delight, inspire and educate." Completed in 1911 the Tudor-style mansion, designed by noted Milwaukee architect Alexander Eschweiler, is intact with original furnishings and the collection spans more than 2,000 years.

Museum exhibitions and programs celebrate the rich variety of cultures found in our city to ensure that we provide a welcoming and engaging environment for all members of our community.

We had the Charles Allis Museum as our wedding ceremony location. The space was great for an outdoor wedding and inside space would have been just as beautiful had it rained.

Overall, working with the Charles Aliis Museum staff was great. They were very responsive and had a staff member assigned for the rehearsal and ceremony. I did feel like there were a lot of questions and pieces of information being shared with me during the rehearsal and ceremony that could have been handled in advance or directed the questions/information to our day-of coordinator but the staff member was incredibly friendly that made it okay.

The location was convenient and great for photos. However, the price did seem a little steep considering the short time frame that we rented it for.

Altogether it was a great space and I'd recommend it to others.
