Excellent model of a WW II Prisoner of War Camp that was just outside of town complete with an original "Wilhelm" German grave marker. It... More

Step into one of the oldest buildings in Crossville and feel the history. If you are interested in the American civil war and forward, the wars connections with the surrounding area and its people... This is the place. I will have to admit if you want to have nice quiet tour alone without interruption, this is not the place to... More

It's free, but give a donation please. We have visited this museum twice and both times it was a learning experience. The items go back to Civil War and up to the present with many item from recent movies, such as Saving Private Ryan.

Lots of priceless artifacts from several wars. Need to stop in and see the flag that is over 150 years old, as well as some surprising artifacts. The gentleman that walked us around the museum was a veteran with a lot of very interesting facts. It was a learning experience for our teenage son for sure and we all enjoyed... More

What a great way to spend an hour or so. Met by a volunteer who gave a great four, explaining the pieces and the local history from the Civil War through Iraq. They have some amazing pieces and allowed the kids to hold a Confederate rifle and sit at a WWI machine gun. Well worth the stop.

A volunteer veteran at the door will walk you thru this tiny museum that has quite a local flair. You will begin with the civil war to present day. We were honored to hear the history of the men and women of this area and their journey for our freedom

Thank Midwest
