The Civil War Museum

A Civil War museum in the Midwest? It's the second largest Civil War Museum in the country! The museum is devoted to the seven states of the Midwest and their part in the war, which was considerable; 49 percent of the Union Army (over a million men) came from the Midwest. It has one of only three 360-degree films in the the U.S., which puts you through what a soldier experienced in battle!
