“Les Paul: The Wizard of Waukesha” opened in Waukesha Sunday.
The 2,000-square-foot exhibit, takes visitors on an experiential journey through Les Paul’s life, featuring eight chapters presented in the inventor’s own words.
One-of-a-kind artifacts and memorabilia, including rare guitars, Les Paul’s personal belongings and original inventions are on display. Several valuable artifacts on loan from The Les Paul Foundation will also be in the Treasures Gallery section of the exhibit.
The exhibit “goes beyond traditional exhibits by connecting guests of all ages with his life story, including one of the biggest influences on his career – his hometown,” said Kirsten Lee Villegas, president and chief executive officer of the museum. “It’s like nothing else ever created to honor him because it focuses on who Les was, and how he thought, inspiring people to pursue their dreams.”
