Best Museum/Historic Site

Parenthood has its advantages, one of them being the ability to ignore your age and act like a kid again at the Children’s Museum of Eau Claire (220 S. Barstow St., Eau Claire). While it’s a long-time favorite on the family scene, the Children’s Museum’s shows it has made an impact on the broader community through this upset victory. Of course, as a nine-time first-place winner, the Chippewa Valley Museum (1204 E. Half Moon Drive, Eau Claire) is no slouch, offering an in-depth look at the region’s history for visitors of all ages. And the Mabel Tainter Center for the Arts (205 Main St. E, Menomonie) still shines for its landmark beauty and the variety of programs it presents. – Tom Giffey
