Visiting The Islamic Center
Would you like to visit the Islamic Center?
The ISM is open to visits organized by religious, school and other interested Groups. All tours and visits must be prearranged with the ISM Office. Visits to the ISM can usually be accommodated on most days of the week. Friday afternoon visits are extremely difficult to accommodate due to conflicts with our main congregational prayers services.
Information about Visiting the Islamic Center
The Islamic Center located at 4707 S. 13th Street is a multifunctional facility. It includes a Masjid (prayer hall), the administrative offices of the Islamic Society of Milwaukee, as well as meeting rooms and classrooms.
During tours of the Islamic Center, you will have the opportunity to visit the prayer hall. The Muslim prayer hall is a large carpeted area that has no pews. Muslim prayers are performed directly on the carpeted floor, and the prayer includes prostrations on the floor. Because of this fact, the carpet must always remain clean. Prior to entering the carpeted area, all shoes need to be removed and placed on shoe racks outside of the prayer hall. For those who may have difficulty removing their shoes, please let us know in advance so that we can provide you with shoe covers.
All guests are requested to dress modestly, in attire appropriate for a house of worship. We kindly request no shorts, sleeveless shirts, above the knee skirts, revealing blouses, t-shirts with inappropriate messages, etc. Women who are visiting are not required to cover their hair, although they may choose to do so.
