  • We enjoyed the civil war museum it was very interesting. We recommend going to all the museums that are in kenosha. 
  • Very informative place if you are interested in the Civil War. There is a small free section, but the main exhibition that shows a short film cost $9.00 The building sits on a beautiful location right on the shores of Lake Michigan and during the weekends, it had a great farmers market with other vendors as well. There was also a 1800's style sailing ship parked in the river inlet that offered a 90 min sailing tour on Lake Michigan for $20 which seemed like a real bargain. I would have taken it, but I get sea sick to easily :(. A great way to spend a day with the family.
  • Very educational and really cool artifacts and replicas. Love coming here with my dad who is a civil war reenactor.
  • Educative, informative, inspiring. Taught me many things about the Civil War and how it impacted ordinary people.
  • Very neat museum. Put it on your must do list if you're a Civil War buff.
  • Very nice local treasure. Lots of information if you take the time to read everything offered.
