This is a reliable, comforting landmark for those of us who are from Milwaukee. It can be seen from many points, including downtown and parts of the east side.

The cool thing about Milwaukee is that it looks urban, but not impossible to hit up all the sites. You can see the clock anywhere in downtown but seeing it closeup is pretty cool

This is a very large four sided clock that can be seen from different places in the city. Neat for a photo op.

This is a must see landmark. If you are driving in from the south heading to Downtown Milwaukee as you approach National Ave , look to your right and you will see the biggest four sided clock in the world. Enjoy the view.
