Located in an 1893 courthouse, the Waukesha County Museum is a not for profit organization, preserving and sharing the history and culture of Waukesha County. We educate and inspire visitors at every stage of learning. A new permanent exhibit, Les Paul: The Wizard of Waukesha is now open at the Waukesha County Museum. The exhibit chronicles his life as a young boy through his years of fame. Rare guitars and priceless artifacts are used to tell the inspiring story of the man who put a dent-in-the-universe by inventing the Gibson solid body electric guitar and sound-on-sound recording.
