Very interesting military museum, with many items (weapons, uniforms, letters, newspaper articles, etc.) to view from the Civil War, WW I, WW II, Koren War, Vietnam War, and the Gulf War. The docent was extremely knowledgeable and gave us a very nice presentation.

This was a small museum in the center of town that had artifacts from every major war we've been in, including the Civil War.. Tours may be given by the founder of the museum who stresses that all the items have been donated to the museum. We stayed over an hour looking at the exhibits and talking about the POW... More

I thought I was good at Military trivia.........NOT! The nicest man you could ever meet took my wife and I around that building which covers all wars from the Civil War to present day and explained the items that we encountered. I will have to go back at least ten times to begin to pay attention to the over 4000... More

My family and I took a trip to this lovely museum and had a great time learning about each war. The guides -volunteers from Crossville- were very informative and answered any and all questions we had. They were gracious and throughout the whole experience, we felt welcomed! I would recommend this museum to anyone. If anyone wants to know more... More

If I had not seen this in Trip Advisor, I would have never known it existed. On our way to Pigeon Forge, we stopped in Crossville. It was Veterans' Day weekend. The many artifacts were interesting and educational. The guide was great and really enhanced the experience. If you enjoy US military history, be sure and visit. Admission is free,... More

We stumbled across this while looking for more information after reading their monuments honoring those who had served in various wars--starting with the Revolutionary war. This is a privately run collection of memorabilia donated by numerous different people, both from the area and the casual visitor who wanted to share their stories or their family's after visiting. This is not... More

The museum is free but the contents you can not place a value. The museum is compact but takes you through American military history beginning with the Civil War to the present. Their are guides on site to answer questions as well. Do not miss it.

What a jewel of a museum, for a town of any size. It's in an historic building downtown and well worth the time for a visit. There is a fabulous display of military memorabilia from pre-Civil War through today, focusing on the history of Cumberland County. Whenever we have visitors, we make sure we take them here.
