“disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The one thing about this museum that is good is the exterior architecture of the building and you can enjoy that without wasting your money on the admission fee.
It would be suitable for a grade-school field trip, but beyond that, don't bother.

“Les Paul”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

A great County Museum with a focus on County history. Now working a Les Paul Museum! This Museum has a great program for students and a wonderful summer program!

“A Great Place to Visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Its small. Its Homey. It's very interesting. And a god place for School Groups to come to for amazing insights into Waukesha History...Not to mention that on Wednesdays the Museum is free to Waukesha Residents. October weekend nights will offer a Family adventure of :A Night at the Museum.

“Return Trip to the Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

We hadn't been to the museum for years, so stopped to see a current display of items that are not usually available to see. I think the museum is especially interesting for locals, but coming exhibits honoring Waukesha's Les Paul will be great for anyone. The facility is easy to navigate. Elevators are available. Admission is inexpensive.
