The Chippewa Valley Museum is a hidden gem among the pines of Carson Park in Eau Claire WI. Many permanent exhibits depict the rich history of the Chippewa Valley. The fur traders that traveled the rivers and the lumber-jacks the cleared the forests are shown in all their glory.
Maps and displays has improved a great deal over the years as local support for this museum has been used well. Friendly staff are always willing to share stories and point out features. The library is another treasure chest of information and resources.
A family will find something for everyone and a cool fresh ice cream treat at the end if the old style soda fountain is open. Usually during the busy times.
Stop in and visit. A small fee has a great return on your investment in time. All will find something to learn about our town, our community and the people who lived here.
