This is in the old courthouse, across the street from the present day courthouse. The fellow that was in there took great pride in knowing the history of just about every artifact in there. He could entertain you for hours with the stories about them and how they got there.

Easy parking. Easy to go through. Several periods of military history in chronological order. So many great things have been given by individuals. I like models of ships etc. and there are many. The WWII German POW display and information is interesting. In the 1950s, I became friends with two Africa Corp men who were interned in Colorado and then... More

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

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
