For $5 a person, a wonderful museum collection awaits you! Two stories of advertising, bottles, equipment from the mid 1800’s to 2000. There are several monitors where you can select the beer and play a selection of their commercials. Loved the beer commercials from the...More

It’s a bit midwestern focused but to be expected from Wisconsin. Some nice history here. Probably would like to see more on prohibition era but I found it interesting and worth 30 minutes to cruise the displays. Be sure to get the beer in potosi...More

You can spend 15 minutes or 2 hours in the museum... do not miss it. If you have ever enjoyed beer, you will find something worthwhile as you walk around the exhibits. The exhibits also change periodically so definitely go back even if you have...More

We came here while traveling from Platteville to Dubuque and thought we'd check out the museum before dinner. What a gem. The exhibits were very well displayed and interesting. Learning about brewing and the history of brewing in the US was fascinating. And it's not...More

I collect beer signs so this was a must see for me. It is in the same building as the Potosi brew pub and is worth seeing. It is primarily older brewery collectables some of which carry quite high values on the auction scene. I...More

If you find yourself anywhere near the southwestern corner of Wisconsin and have even a slight interest in microbrewery beer or brewing history, this place is a “must see”. The museum is in the old Potosi Brewery building and associated with the current Potosi microbrewery....More

Three floors of beer signs, advertising and memorabilia from around the nation with a concentration on Wisconsin brewery’s of the past. Extremely interesting! Be sure to stop in the bar and try a few of the selections and enjoy a meal as well.

Google the museum for many of your questions and more. We didn't do the full tour since we've been on other brewery tours. Plus, if you're a "senior", the admission is discounted. Make sure you do the restaurant. Food... More
