Become a Tour Guide

Historic Milwaukee, Inc. is looking for new, volunteer tour guides! Attendance to our walking tours has increased significantly over the past few years and we are now seeking friendly, enthusiastic volunteers to help us continue offering our thought-provoking tours to residents and visitors alike.

Since 1974, HMI has entertained and educated tour-goers by utilizing Milwaukee’s built environment to connect visitors to the past and link buildings to their histories.

This is your opportunity to share your passion for all things Milwaukee with others! No previous formal education in architecture or history is required.

Learn your city, read your city, teach your city!

Things to Remember

A good tour guide is friendly, outgoing and eager to learn new things.

You don’t have to be an expert on history or architecture. We provide all of our guides with tour scripts and we are happy to work one-on-one until you feel ready to do a tour on your own.
