    Follow the course of the war as you walk through the museum. The dioramas bring the history to life. The movie in the round will tell you what it means to See the Elephant!  more »

    I had a spectacular visit. The museum is a refreshing new take on what museums should be. My experience was immersive and eye opening, and I would reccomend this place to anyone young or old, newcomer or avid historian.

    I was in Wisconsin for a worship conference and my son took me the museum. I need to back again because I never made upstairs to see the World War I part of the museum and it's connection to the Civil War. It is a wonderful museum and be sure to catch the film.

    Fun and good value. The 360 movie was worth all of it. Puts the war into a new perspective.

    We took out-of-town family here to learn more about American history. Admission prices were very reasonable. We spent a little over 2 hours at the museum. The museum had appropriate exhibits for children and hands-on learning opportunities. The entire family enjoyed the 360 degree movie. We learned a lot and recommend a visit. There is also a complimentary civil war library available.
