Milwaukee Historic Scavenger Hunt

Every year, Milwaukee flings open the doors of the city’s most prized architectural sites, and 25,000+ participants swarm to get a behind-the-scenes look at the city for free. This annual event is called Doors Open Milwaukee, and exposes the public to the grandeur and character of Cream City’s past. 

We are thrilled to announce that we are joining forces with Historic Milwaukee to present an epic scavenger hunt around the city to bring these sites to life. 

The event is free, open to the public, and designed for all ages. The goal of the Doors Open Milwaukee Scavenger Hunt is to spotlight the city’s hidden history in a way that is memorable, engaging and fun. 


Players will start at Doors Open Milwaukee Headquarters – City Hall Rotunda, 200 E. Wells Street — and log into the game using smartphones. Between 10am and 3pm they will have a chance to complete various missions, solve clues, take photos and answer trivia questions about historic Milwaukee. 

Both teams and individuals are encouraged to play. The game is free with RSVP:

Join us for a day of surprise, delight, and absurdity, as we celebrate the history of one of America’s most dynamic cities. 

The Federal Courthouse, not usually open to the public, received 2,300 visitors in just one day during the event.
