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.

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...

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.
