NOW: New addition to Milwaukee’s Pabst Mansion opens to the public

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee's Pabst Mansion first opened in 1892 and the building has been largely preserved from the bygone era. But Friday, June 10, a brand new edition to the historic home opened to the public. 

Next time you stop by the Pabst Mansion, you'll find a visitor center that will help tell the story of the home of Frederick Pabst, one of the people who made Milwaukee famous for brewing beer. 

"It allows us to welcome 42,000+ people a year in a new way, where they can see the retail...have a digital experience that includes a presentation space. And just in the operations side two more bathrooms, which means something. So we’ll take it," said Mame McCully, executive director for the Pabst Mansion.

Also new is a gift shop, where you can buy souvenirs from Pabst, from Milwaukee and from Wisconsin. This is now the only retail store on Milwaukee's near west side. 

The Pabst Mansion is open seven days a week. 

They recommend that you book your admission in advance.
