Best Museum/Historic Site

There’s no denying that the Chippewa Valley is rich with history and offers some great places to explore that history further. The Chippewa Valley Museum (Carson Park, Eau Claire) is a great resource for diving into the area’s past. Don’t forget to stop by the ice cream parlor on your next visit, which has a story of its own. Looking for a place to spark imagination and creativity for the kiddos? Plan a visit to the Children’s Museum of Eau Claire (220 S. Barstow St., Eau Claire), where kids can get hands-on learning experiences. Interested in the brewing history of the Chippewa Valley? Take a tour of the historic Leinenkugel’s Brewery (124 E. Elm St., Chippewa Falls) and learn about 150 years of brewing heritage and how the Leinenkugel family made its place in the Chippewa Valley. – Kellie Williams
