Cheese Factory Tour at Clock Shadow Creamery

Cheese factory tours are $3 for adults and $2 for children under 12. Due to the small size of our factory and restrictions on visitors in production areas, the tour is limited to our observation room. From the observation room, our friendly and knowledgeable staff will verbally guide you through the cheese making process. We are generally making fresh cheese curds Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, but if you’re coming for fresh curds, please call ahead to confirm availability!

Tours generally take half an hour and are offered every half hour between 10:30am and 2:00 pm Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. Tours for groups of 10 or more are available Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. These must be reserved in advance.

Clock Shadow Creamery is located in the historic Walker’s Point Neighborhood, on the corner of Bruce and 2nd St. There are great options for coupling your cheese experience:

For Adults: Set up a tour of the Milwaukee Brewing Company, just across the street, for the ultimate, Wisconsin Cheese and Beer sampling experience.

For the Kiddos: Schedule a tour of the Center for the Arts for a dual educational experience.

Please note:

  • We only have street parking available at this time.
  • Because our production schedule varies, we cannot guarantee that you will see cheese being made. 
  • Because we are an active manufacturing facility, we are unable to take visitors into any of our production areas.
  • Unfortunately, we are not always able to accommodate walk-in tours.  Please reserve your tour in advance by emailing or calling 414-273-9711.

We look forward to seeing you!
