About Turner Hall Ballroom

Your Wedding Made Legendary


Constructed in 1882, Turner Hall began as a showplace for the panoramic painters and other German immigrant artists who dominated the Milwaukee art scene until the 1920’s and throughout the early 1900’s. It is the only building in Milwaukee that currently holds the three following honorary architectural and historical designations: a National Landmark, a listing on the National Registry of Historic Places, and a local Historical Landmark. Located in the heart of downtown, across from the Bradley Center, the two-story, 7,000 – plus square foot Ballroom is a central hub for a vast array of events in the city of Milwaukee. Turner Hall features a variety of customizable options, from bar packages to catering, that make your wedding as unique as the space that’s hosting it.

Although the venue can be a little on the pricier side, my fiancé and I think it is well worth it and are beyond excited to have our ceremony and reception at Turner Hall Ballroom. Ann, the Events Coordinator, provided us with an excellent tour and even allowed us to view the space again with my parents when she was busy setting up for an event. Although she was busy, she was still checking in to answer any of our questions and give us suggestions. The space is rustic, beautiful and holds a great deal of history. Another plus is they are very accommodating for larger guest lists. Bar packages are customizable so we aren't going to have to pay an arm and a leg for beverages with such a larger guest list. Again, we are beyond excited!

This is a wonderful venue for couples looking to truly customize their experience. Because Turner doesn't require you to use specific vendors (outside of those vendors being licensed), you can truly customize the experience to be your own. As far as price goes, I think it was a good value considering we got the venue for 12 hours, but the extra costs did add up (Security, Lighting, Room flip). However, they have a very flexible beverage package which worked great for us.

All in all, Turner Hall was the perfect venue for our day.

We had a very positive experience with our wedding at Turner Hall! The venue looked beautiful and the team was very helpful. There were a couple times during the planning process when we had to ask for information or request follow-up when I would have expected the team to be a bit more proactive. Additionally, some small issues of keeping track of payments that could have been avoided. In terms of flexibility, I'm sure this is a common request, but being able to bring in alcohol instead of being required to purchase from the venue would have been a perk.

Overall, a great experience having our wedding here, especially for a large guest list and would definitely recommend it.
