I made a point to drive by the Allen-Bradley Company Clock last time I was in Milwaukee. Wish they had tours.

The Rockwell Automation (Formerly Allen-Bradley) is the largest four faced clock in the world (Yes it is larger than Big Ben in London). It can be see from the freeway and if you have 10 - 15 minutes to spare, just exit the freeway and do a quick side trip. It is an icon for Milwaukee. Unfortunately, no public tours.

Its not open for tours, so no reason to stop. Easily seen from freeway or coming from Comedysportz. Looked nice lighted up but it is still just a clock even if you understand its history

Best seen from the freeway at night, when it's lit. Would be interesting to tour (if tours are even available), but otherwise not worth exiting the freeway for.

As a child, I prided myself on knowing that the original was "the largest 4 sided, lit-up clock in the world" and advising everyone in the car of that fact whenever we drove near! It is now the 2nd largest, but still very neat! After moving away years ago, seeing if brings back childhood memories :-}

This is a drive-by. If you're on the highway driving toward downtown Milwaukee and you see a huge 4-sided clock, you'll probably say "Wow! Look at that!" Can't miss it. And now you'll know the name of it and why it's unique.

Was on top of the 'Clock' for a hospitality event. Full windows offering and a 360 view of MKE. We had a tour of the clock workings (including gun shot holes in the face of the clock). Long story short, if you get a chance, get in that room - AND enjoy the historical experience.

the tower on the A-B Company has four sides, each with a huge white clock, like a lighthouse on the south side of Milwaukee. it used to be known as 'the Polish moon' because of all the immigrant Polish workers who lived in the area; nowadays it's 'la luna latina,' since the neighborhood is mostly Mexican immigrants.

This is still the largest clock (bigger than Big Ben) in the world. It is a great symbol of Milwaukee and I enjoy seeing it when I visit the south side of Milwaukee. When I was in London on a bus tour, we went past Big Ben of course and the tour guide mentioned our Allen Bradley clock.
