Douglas County Museum in Waterville
This small but very well curated museum features items used by Native Americans and pioneers of the late 1800s as well as a great meteorite and mineral collection.
Functional tools and articles that added music & culture. One of the most intriguing features is the vast mineral collection that includes petrified woods, fluorescents and locally found meteorites. Have the docent turn off the lights in the exhibit room to truly appreciate the fluorescents.
Since its founding in 1889, Waterville, along with the designation of being the Douglas County Seat, boasts a rich history filled with farming and recreation destinations. It is a great jumping off point to explore Coulee country and the Ice Age Floods trail.
