Civil War Museum
The Civil War Museum focuses on the contributions of the Upper Middle West – Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Minnesota, and Michigan – to the Civil War. These states played a vital role by providing troops and supplies to the cause, even though no battles were fought in this region. The exhibits concentrate on personal stories of people from all walks of life and circumstance. Men, women and children from various ethnic backgrounds experienced life during and after the war in different ways. It is through these unique stories that the museum visitor learns about the causes and effects of the Civil War and its impact on the region. The Veterans Memorial Gallery honors all U.S. veterans and soldiers from the Revolutionary War to present day conflicts. Group tours welcomed. Facility rentals available. Plenty of free parking. Nominal admission fee to main exhibit, rest of the museum is free.
