A lovely little chapel, very small, and difficult to visit and really look at when someone is in there meditating. Rather dark...pretty stained glass window at altar end. The garden surround was lovely and well tended, much color, and some little points of interest, e.g....More

An amazing find in the middle of Milwaukee. The Marquette campus is beautiful but finding a 15th century chappel there is amazing. A curator there took lots of time to explain details and not in a theoretical, theological way, but historically. Fabulous stop!

Hidden in the middle of Marquette's campus, I was fortunate to tour the inside of this church. It is the actual transplantation of a French chapel and looks like it would be a neat place to worship if you are in town during the week.

The oldest structure in Milwaukee that dates back to the early 15th century (circa 1420). The heart of the Catholic and Jesuit university community of Marquette University. Services and tours available. Educational and Interesting time line from 1420's untill it's arriving in Milwaukee 1966.

The small, historic chapel in the Marquette University campus, is a hidden treasure. Open limited hours, well worth the time and effort.

For people who love chapels then this one will be nice to visit. St. Jean dʻArc was imprisoned here during her time. It is a 13th Century chapel that was bought by a railroad baron. Taken down brick by brick and reassembled at the mansion....More

Very interesting to see and it's free. A historical building from the 15th century. Simple but solid.

We just went In. It is very small. Got there before the mass started. We looked up the schedule for mass on line. Will only take 15 minutes to view it at most.
