Facility:Civil War Museum of The Western Theatre
Description:The Civil War Museum, located in what used to be the town's water works and icehouse, the 8500 sq. ft. building has been completely renovated with $450,000 from the state government. It is the fourth-largest Civil War Museum in the United States. The story of the western theater is told plainly in geographical and chronological segments. Examples of some of the artifacts the museum showcases include the flag of the 2nd Kentucky Cavalry, the presentation sword of Confederate Brigadier General Lloyd Tilghman, and a silver flask presented to Confederate General John C. Breckinridge a few days after he joined the Confederate Army. Among other things, the museum also has Infantry, Cavalry , Naval Artillery Rooms. The Artillery Room is one major display you won't want to miss. Among others, the display includes a one-pounder smoothbore cannon made at the Tredegar Iron Works in Richmond, Virginia. Used in the field by Mosby's raiders, the gun could be taken apart and transported on horseback. Also among the displays is a 12 lb. mountain Howitzer, belonging to Eli Lilly's 18th Indiana artillery.

Also check out the Pioneer Village, the Women's Civil War Museum, the War Memorial of Mid America, and the Wildlife Museum.
