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.

Hasn't been Allen Bradley in over a decade but the clock is still there, working perfectly and is visible for miles. Probably one of the last bastions of a bygone era.

I grew up within a mile of this clock. It was the Allen Bradley Company back then - now it's Rockwell Automation -but we called it the "Polish Moon" (with all due respect to my heritage.) Some interesting facts - It was dedicated on October 31, 1962 and rises 280 feet from the street.. It requires 34.6 kilowatts of electricity... More

No longer the major center of manufacturing in Milwaukee. Now just a memory of a more prosperous working blue collar city!

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

2nd largest clock in the world just below a clock in Saudi Arabia. Nice to look at but definitely not a MUST see.

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

"Up to the highest hights, up to the atmosphere, oh let's go fly a kite." It would be a great place to do so. There are ladders involved but I usually see the clock tower from the highway. My husband currently works there. Please see old movies for $400, Alex.

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.
