The War Memorial Center - This architectural landmark on Milwaukee’s lakefront is a spectacular venue for your rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony and/or reception. Designed by renowned architect Eero Saarinen, the building’s unique design is now considered a classic in the development of modern architecture.
Resting between the Milwaukee Art Museum and Veterans Park, this fabulous lakefront site has both indoor and outdoor event facilities. Our modern banquet hall with scenic views of downtown Milwaukee can accommodate up to 260 guests. With splendid views of the Calatrava addition to the Milwaukee Art Museum, our unique outdoor terrace on the edge of Lake Michigan can accommodate up to 800 guests. The terrace and an indoor gallery can also be rented for cocktail hour prior to your reception.
Our experienced and professional staff is committed to helping you plan an occasion that will be a truly memorable experience for you and your guests. So much of what you need is on-site – white wood chairs for outdoor events, tables, chairs, risers and a beautiful wood dance floor for our indoor banquet hall. These amenities, as well as set-up and tear-down, are included in the rental price. Ample parking is available directly north of the Memorial.
You can’t beat our fabulous lakefront views, some of the finest you will find in southeastern Wisconsin! To schedule an appointment to view our facility, contact the Events Manager at 414-273-5533.
