Exposition Building

Milwaukee in Miniature

The Milwaukee County Historical Society is proud to share its current exhibit: Milwaukee in Miniature.

The exhibit offers a rare look at some of Milwaukee’s most treasured historical landmarks all in miniature form.  Highlighted in the exhibit are 16 scale models of Milwaukee’s buildings as they appeared at the turn of the century.  The scale models were created by Ferdinand Aumueller, a Milwaukee resident who spent countless hours during his retirement to recreate the City of Milwaukee in miniature form.

The exhibit will run through the end of this year.
