Waukesha County Historical Museum

County history is preserved and shared through the museum's long-standing efforts in the community.

The Waukesha County Historical Society and Museum is a not-for-profit institution dedicated to promoting interest in the prehistory, natural history, history and culture of Waukesha County by: collecting and preserving material; interpreting and creating exhibits; and providing educational opportunities. To this end, the Museum maintains a Research Center for family and history research for Waukesha County.


We hope you enjoy our work.
