Lots to see - quite a bit of various products from the time period. Very interesting to hear what the companies that made liquor did during prohibition. And the drugstore info - who knew that original Coke had cocaine??

Reminds me of House on the Rock, only more organized. Could be Streets of Old Milwaukee, only interactive for kids. Really a good time, priced right, and the staff is enthusiastic!

We spent an hour going thru each room and enjoyed seeing the collection from the early 1900's. The tour guides love their job and it was worth the 6.00 admission.
