The Chippewa Falls Museum of Industry and Technology, Inc., (CFMIT) has a two-fold mission. First, we interpret the rich, varied history of the manufacturing and processing industries that have existed here since the beginning of the community in the 1840s. Within the context of the history of these industries, we also tell of our area and its people. The second part of our mission is to inspire interest and understanding of the technological principles fundamental to our historic and contemporary industries. We intend to serve a broad audience, including all ages and educational backgrounds.

A small museum that pays tribute to local companies that have been involved in technology. The main display is for Cray Supercomputers, which still operates in this small town. While not the Smithsonian, the staff is very friendly and helpful and willing to take you along for a ride through Chippewa Falls history. Hours are limited so please plan accordingly when you wish to visit. You can easily see the whole place in an hour, or spend all day looking over the Cray stuff. Up to you. Donations are accepted, but the museum is free of charge.

The birth place of the supercomputer was AWSOME. The inventors own notes and prototype on display

Love working here. The collections are first rate. The work that is done in Chippewa impresses me, and it is so cool to see a community celebrate its industrial history. 5 stars coming when programs and updates are completed!

Fascinating collections. Came here for the Cray exhibit, and it is excellent, though I had to teach the guides about the historical significance of many of them.
