This site has a good history of the 1811 Battle of Tippecanoe. The museum offers walking tour. Make sure to stop and the video room where you can see a graphical description of the battle. The last room in the tour has a great display of guns from the early 1800’s and 1900’s. Once done with the tour, walk across the parking lot to see the actual place of the battle. On the field you will see the memorial stones were some of the soldiers died.

It is so rare to find battlefields in the US, let alone west of the Appalachians, so this place is a true treasure. I thought the museum did a really outstanding job talking about the area and laying out the story of the battle without being too heavy-handed towards one side or another. It's a sad part of our history and it is important to never forget. The battlefield is really serene and such a confined area, I was surprised how small it really was. It must have been pandemonium that day. I would highly recommend stopping for an hour or two.

Loved the museum, the staff and the ease to get there. It was well worth the time, it was only 10 minutes from the Hotel

This museum had lots of good artifacts and excellent background info on everything. It is smaller, but still worth going to. They have a firearm collection here too going from late 1600's through Vietnam. The gift shop is also nice. The battlefield is across the parking lot from the museum and is interesting to walk.

The museum was very informative and presented a short video overview of the battle. Lots of information on the Indian history as we need to remember how Indians influenced our movement into the Northwestern Territory
