I am a big Civil War buff and always jump at the chance to visit pretty much any attraction focusing on the war. While researching our Kenosha trip, I immediately placed The Civil War Museum on my list. What a wise choice I made! The museum really reflects the experience of the Midwest during the conflict shedding light on what people living our region encountered--something you don't really learn about when visiting the battlefields.

As you can see, The Civil War Museum provides an engaging and educational visit. Perfect for families! We were very impressed with the depth of knowledge, quality of artifacts and areas for kids to have hands-on exploration!
