Milwaukee County War Memorial

Memorial Hall Rates

Memorial Hall, a beautiful banquet hall located on the third floor of the War Memorial Center, offers sweeping views of downtown Milwaukee through five floor-to-ceiling windows.  The room can accommodate up to 260 guests for an elegant dinner/dance or up to 400 in a lecture/theatre style set-up. When divided, the north and south sections provide space for smaller groups.

Flexible set-up allows the room to be easily transformed to accommodate weddings, seminars, fundraisers, training sessions, and various corporate and non-profit events.
Fitch Plaza is located on the second level of the War Memorial Center. As weather allows, this outdoor patio offers a spectacular, unique lakefront location for a variety of events. With extraordinary views of Lake Michigan, downtown Milwaukee, Discovery World, and the Calatrava addition to the Milwaukee Art Museum, Fitch Plaza is a superb location for your wedding or corporate gathering.

The War Memorial Center extends at 10% discount to military members and veterans. Ask about seasonal discounts. Prices subject to change. Please contact us for pricing on events with more than 300 guests.
