A beautiful property on which the battle occured in 1811. There are grave stones for some of the officers killed there, but sadly, none for the American Indians who died. Read the signs to learn about the battle. The oak trees are estimated to be 300 years old.

This museum was filled with artifacts and history related to the war between Tecumseh and the military. Well worth the time.

Beautiful setting, but not really much there. It would be lovely for a picnic. We didn't get a chance to see the museum (it was closed the day we were there). Would come back to see it, though.

Visited the memorial at Tippecanoe Battlefield. small place but well maintained. Only 15 minutes from Purdue. Learned some American history not covered in my high school history classes. It's a quick trip unless you opt to go into the museum. Gift shop looked bigger than the Museum. @$5 per person, $20 was a bit too much at 3pm in the... More

This museum is located right across the parking lot from the actual battlefield site. The battlefield itself is not much to see with the exception of the large monument. There is no signage on the battlefield site explaining the significance of the site or how the battle went, so to truly understand what happened here you must visit the museum.... More

The memorial was wonderful, and the museum told the story, but it felt a little like personalities and people were missing. I was expecting it to be like Little Big Horn, to be honest. And I think it wouldn't hurt to include stories of the Indians, and to include their names on the memorial.

Three of us decided to spend a day site seeing around Tippecanoe County. The museum is very informative...showing artifacts of the area prior to 1811 as well as details of the battle and its aftermath. After the museum, we walked around the fenced battleground viewing markers and picturing what happened, based on the light show inside. Well worth the visit.

This place has improved since I was here last. The museum is much improved! The staff were very professional and also very nice. They took the time to let me listen to a couple of songs before I bought an cd. I also really enjoyed the exhibit of rifles. It helps me visualize what they look like when I'm reading... More

was staying in valparaiso for the weekend, drove the 100 or so miles to visit the museum, was worth the drive, nice displays and interactive exhibits. Gift shop has good selection of souvenirs and books. Was raining very hard that day so wasn't able to explore the monuments outside. admission was only $5.
