Les Paul: The Wizard of Waukesha
Exhibit Now Open!
Located in the charming historic downtown district of Waukesha, Wisconsin, the museum shares the hometown of music legend Les Paul. Our new permanent exhibit in his honor Les Paul: The Wizard of Waukesha debuted on the anniversary of his 98th birthday June 9, 2013. No other town in the world could be a better fit to present this tribute to Les Paul and create such a strong connection between Wisconsin and world-class talent. The exhibit, and the Les Paul Sound Lab for children, is free with admission.
Plan to visit soon and spend a fun day or weekend exploring the area. Waukesha is only 20 minutes west of Milwaukee on I94. Surrounded by inland lakes and biking and hiking trails, Waukesha offers art galleries, antiques, unique shops, fabulous restaurants, live music, festivals and fun evening activities. Visit Waukesha Pewaukee Visitor Bureau for ideas to make your trip truly special. After visiting the exhibit in his honor, take the self-guided Les Paul’s Waukesha Tour put together by the Les Paul Foundation.
