Small museum but packed to the ceiling. The men that run the place were very informative. All of us really liked it. So much to see. Don't miss if your in the area.

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.

Well worth the stop! Never knew there was a German prison camp in Crossville during WWII. The tour guide gave us an excellent tour full of info. Civil war though current wars.

This is a fantastic museum, with a collection of artifacts from the Civil War, WW I & II, Korean War, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. They have some memorabilia you won't find anywhere else. Very well displayed, with sections on each of the wars. All of the over 3,000 items were donated and are in superb condition. You'll want to... More
