Tours of City Hall

Tour the Tower!

At noon on the second and fourth Wednesday, from June 26, 2019 to October 9, 2019, you can come along for a guided tour of City Hall that includes a climb up into the bell tower.

Tour size is limited to 20 persons and sign-up is required. Attendees are included on a first-come, first-served basis. To sign up for one of these regular tours please contact Ms. Arlisia McHenry at 414-286-2206 or Please be sure to specify which date you are signing up for.

NOTE: The tour will start at the information booth in the first floor rotunda at City Hall, 200 E. Wells St. A signed waiver form is required to climb into the bell tower. All minors must be accompanied by an adult and have a waiver form signed by a parent or guardian. The tour does involve a fair amount of climbing and portions of it are exposed to the elements, so weather-appropriate dress is strongly advised.
