Milwaukee's historic Pabst Mansion will reopen to the public on April 10

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Pabst Mansion announced its plan to reopen to the public beginning Saturday, April 10.

The historic home and museum will now feature self-guided tours. Officials say this is the first chance the public will have to view the Victorian-era home of famed beer baron Captain Frederick Pabst since it closed a year ago due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Though the Pabst Mansion was closed to the public, behind the doors it was undergoing the largest restoration project the home has seen. This included rewiring the entire electrical system. Officials say, during restoration, hints of the past were uncovered, including one of the original alarm systems of the house. The system will now be on display.

Docent-led tours will start in May. Officials say announcements will be made soon regarding themes of the new tours. 

Family-friendly tours will begin the day each Friday and Saturday, as well as an online timed ticketing system.
