Tripoli Mosque, architecturally a replica of India’s Taj Mahal, is home to the Tripoli Shrine Center. It is one of Milwaukee’s landmarks, on the National Register of Historic Places, a structure truly deserving of preservation.

Our headquarters is more than just a location for business offices. It provides the accommodations from which we can carry on a wide variety of programs that affect thousands of people – adults and kids alike. Included among the better known events are the Circus held every February, the Midwest Shrine Game and our work on behalf of the Shriners Hospitals for Children. But let’s not the good things accomplished by our Shrine Clubs that serve 20 communities and the 27 Units that range from the Animals, Clowns and Chanters to the Highlanders, Hillbillies, Legion of Honor and Motor Corps. Since 1922, the Shrine has supported and operated a network of 22 specialized hospitals providing expert, orthopedic and burn care to children 18 and under, regardless of the patient’s or family’s ability to pay.
