Gothic Milwaukee Classic Walking Tour

Visit Website Add to My Favorites

On the streets of Milwaukee, lurking in the shadows of history, live tales of ghosts and haunted buildings. These tales, whispered so as not to wake the dead, or frighten the living have endured the passage of time.

Walk Downtown Milwaukee to look beyond what you see every day and explore a world of hidden pasts and dark secrets, restless spirits and eerie sightings.

Anna, your tour guide, a native Milwaukeean and avid collector of local folklore and legend, is delighted to introduce you to the spook-tacular side of Milwaukee. Gothic Milwaukee is one of Milwaukee’s most fun historical attractions and we are thrilled to share with you the folklore, legends and macabre tales that lurk on nearly every block of the city.
