Designed by prominent Milwaukee architect Alexander Eschweiler for Charles Allis, the first president of Allis Chalmers, and his wife Sarah in 1911, this unique Tudor-style mansion and art collection was built with the sole purpose of bequeathing it to the public to delight, educate and inspire. The permanent collection features 19th Century French and American Paintings, Chinese and Japanese porcelains, Renaissance bronzes, Japanese netsuke, and original antique furnishings.

Treasures can be found throughout Charles Allis Art Museum. The Museum contains a collection of paintings, prints, sculpture, ceramics and more. This house Museum is a gift to the people of Milwaukee from Charles Allis and his wife Sarah. Charles was the first president of the Allis-Chalmers Manufacturing Company. Both he and his wife were patrons of the arts and were responsible for many acts of charity beyond the art world. Milwaukee architect Alexander Eschweiler designed the Tudor-style mansion, completed in 1911. The Tudor rose motif is used throughout the Museum.

Recognized for its classic elegance, the Charles Allis Art Museum is the ideal spot for an intimate wedding reception, a corporate retreat or a cocktail party. Enjoy the setting of Milwaukee's historic East Side as your guests appreciate the appeal of this stunning 1911 Tudor-style mansion. Allow the backdrop of Charles and Sarah Allis' gift to our community transform your event into a very special occasion. The rental areas of the Charles Allis Art Museum include the elegant Margaret Rahill Great Hall, patio and English Garden.
