It was very educational for me because I saw things and equipment they used while in the military. There is a picture of my father and three of his brothers who were all in the military during WWII. It was cool to see that

Walked in and was greeted immediately by the docent. You're given the option of going thru on your own and the docent will take you on the tour. His tour flowed from the Civil War thru Afghanistan. The museum is small, all on one floor. The docent gave highlights of every section. Very interesting. I learned more about tanks in... More

This is a small building but is full of really interesting things from Civil War, WWI & WWII, Korean War, Viet Nam War, and Gulf War. There is also artifacts from the POW Camp that was local. The attendant told us a lot of facts; made it interesting. It is free.

This is a great spot to stop in downtown Crossville. They have lots of unique war artifacts donated from families and retirees in the area. The museum covers mainly Civil War through WWII with some Vietnam and Desert Storm. Talk to the docents in the museum, many of them have their own stories and are vets. Kids will love it.

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...
