Great stop! Use your GPS, a little hard to find for us. The gentlemen in the camp museum were hillarious. They are also a great source of info for the area.
The statues were fun and the next door museum (not the logging camp museum) was open. If the logging camp museum was as good as the next door Chippewa Valley history museum it would have been quite good.
Nice little stopover if you like artifacts, audio tours, need to entertain antsy kids, or just want to stretch. We learned quite a bit of history, though I was disappointed that it was not a living museum (people dressed up and doing things) like I had expected for some reason. Worth the admission!
Great stop. Also the county museum is right next door, see both for $12. I spent nearly 3 hours there and the volunteers were very helpful. A surprising history of logging from about 1860 to 1929.
Great for kids and adults and an awesome effort to preserve the heritage history of the town of Eau Claire. Everything was very well done, displayed and put together!
Warning, open to the public from May 1st to September 30th. As of 2018 cost is $10 per adult. That being said when my husband and I arrived in early April the two charming ladies waiting for a s book group opened up the museum baseboards the cook house and bunk room. This is a wonderful place to visit, the number of original artifacts in the buildings is impressive. I really loved the attention to detail in the museum, for example there were detailed instructions on how to darn socks! .
Impossible to find without GPS, but a really good educational stop. My teen and preteen really liked it. It was very well presented and we all learned something about the logging industry.
