Four colleges and universities also call the city home: the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire (UW-Eau Claire), Globe University, Chippewa Valley Technical College, and Immanuel Lutheran College.

The Chippewa Valley M

For more than 300 years before the fur traders, lumberjacks, and farmers arrived in Chippewa Valley, the Ojibwa lived, loved, worshiped, and toiled in the Eau Claire region. Their tales and the stories of early European settlers are among the experiences to be had at the Chippewa Valley Museum in Eau Claire's Carson Park. Through its more than 16,200 artifacts and its storytelling exhibit format, the museum illustrates the life and times of the historic and more modern inhabitants of the valley. The museum also maintains three other historic sites, which allow visitors to step into 19th century Eau Claire.
