The Basilica of St. Josaphat resembles St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome and was constructed in the late 19th century and finished by 1901 to accommodate the growing number of Parishioners. However, the interior was completed around the mid 20th century. Today the church is an exquisite example of Roman architecture and art seen in its intricate Murals, ornamental plasterwork and columns painted to look like marble!
Today the Basilica itself is considered an art masterpiece. There are tours arranged here and the place also has a Visitor Center where you can see free exhibits regarding the Basilica’s history.

Basilica Of St. Josaphat Reviews & Ratings
Someone once told me that going to this Basilica is like going to Europe, without ever leaving Milwaukee. Now I know what they mean. It is absolutely gorgeous.I came in here and just wandered around. They have a nice little exhibit that talks about the history of the Basilica. However, apparently they have a tour Sunday after mass. I think it would be worth you doing a tour to hear more about the architecture and the history of this fantastic place.
We didn’t go here for worship, but we came here for an exquisite concert by Frank Almond, Concertmaster of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. He filled the gigantic room with his spectacular violin playing, and this facility was so beautiful, it became a character in the drama of his musical explorations. This place is an environment of exquisite and classic beauty. There’s an atmosphere of grandeur and calm that’s unmatched anywhere, especially here in the Milwaukee area. The building has a storied history, and a visit here will not leave you disappointed, even if you’re not religious.
A place to be inspired and awed. This place is gorgeous filled with beautiful paintings, stained glass, a dome with wonderful artwork and a magnificent atmosphere of peace. A place definitely worth visiting if you want to see lovely religious art and great architecture. And don't forget to buy a piece of chocolate to contribute with maintenance and restoration
This place was absolutely stunning. We hate to have missed the inside (got there a few minutes till close but it seems like their clocks run just a few minutes fast). May come back to visit Milwaukee just to see this again. 🤷🏼♀️
If you are visiting Milwaukee this is a must see! Even if you aren't religious, the architecture and beauty of the basilica is absolutely breath taking. Open to the public the majority of the time, and there is parking outside and a gift shop inside.
