  • 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.
