  • Who would expect a Civil War Museum in a state that witnessed no battles in the Civil War? Well, don't be too quick to judge. This museum takes the view of those who experienced the war from many pers...  more »

  • A hidden gem. If you're a Civil War aficionado, this is the place to see great artifacts of the times. Full of history & Wisconsin's place in the conflict, visitors can view a state-of-the-art 360° surround film that is the centerpiece of the permanent exhibit. The open rooftop venue is perfect for summer lunches or weddings with fantastic views of Lake Michigan. Library, gift shop & meeting rooms make this a perfect multi-function facility.
  • First time going to this museum even though it has been opened for years. And it is totally worth the cost. The production quality is great, and works to tell a detailed story of our nation's history. I appreciate that it tells the direct story and doesn't skew to one story or another.
  • Excellent research center upstairs, spent a lot of time reading actual hand written letters of WI soldiers during the war, very interesting to get a soldiers perspective of why they were involved in the war. Prolly different than u imagined.
  • My son and I love going here. The exhibit is well worth the couple of dollars!
  • Very nice and interactive museum. They have a huge movie experience as well as a library. Kids can dress up and play games. Everything is really well labeled and the information is interesting.
