Dream big at the Tripoli Shrine Center!

When our founders envisioned the design for the Tripoli Shrine Center in 1925, they modeled their dream after the Taj Mahal, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. They wanted a beautiful, memorable space; and they spared no expense to create it.

Walk inside our doors and you’ll be astounded by the interior details – including bronze accents, opulent chandeliers and hand-laid mosaic tile – which takes inspiration from the breathtaking Alhambra palace in Spain. It’s the perfect backdrop for a fairytale wedding unlike any other.

Host your ceremony beneath our Grand Dome followed by appetizers, dinner and dancing in the Humphrey Ballroom. Or dream up another perfect scenario using any combination of our unique spaces.

Whether you’re planning an intimate family dinner or a huge celebration with appetizers, dinner and dancing, our flexible accommodations make it easy to create your dream celebration. Even more, our complimentary amenities include things like free parking, a champagne toast for wedding party, and conveniences like in-house sound systems, screens, and projectors.

Take a tour, drink in the beautiful details, and picture your unique day in our beautiful one-of-a-kind venue.

  • "What a gorgeous place, and the staff was top notch. I felt like a dignified guest. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication to a true Milwaukee land mark. Proof of greatness doesn't have to be giant buildings though. After the event, the staff shared some gloves and plastic wrap so we could donate the leftovers. It's the little things that make all things possible. Well done, and my gratitude is eternal."
