The Bucyrus Museum is home to the history of Bucyrus’ world-class earth moving, crane, and drilling equipment.
We are located on the second floor of the renovated Bucyrus Club, 1919 12th Avenue, in South Milwaukee, WI.
Come on in during our open hours, or make an appointment for group events, and see old Milwaukee and the finest engineering history.
HOURS – Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays: 10:00 am-3:00 pm
Group events are available outside of normal hours by appointment. Please call to make an appointment.
2023 HOLIDAY HOURS – The museum will be closed Nov. 23rd & 25th, and Dec. 23rd and 26th so our docent volunteers can enjoy time with their families.
Since the building’s construction in 1892, it’s served as a furniture factory, assembly shop, employee club, and community center. Today, the Bucyrus Museum is dedicated to preserving the local industrial history of South Milwaukee and the history of the Bucyrus.
