I came across this little museum while walking around downtown and decided to investigate. The first surprise was that admission was free. While not a large museum, it held quite a bit of information. I can say I learned a lot about the Korean War, although I will admit that my knowledge was limited to what I might have learned... 更多
My husband was in the Army, and stationed on the DMZ in Korea. It brought back a lot of memories for him. They had a full display of the clothes he used to wear, and he was able to show me (on a map), exactly where he was stationed at. Also a lot of great information about Korea (now and... 更多
As the son of a surviving Korean War veteran, I was shocked (yet very pleased) to see this museum in Springfield, ILL. The staff was very helpful. It was somewhat sparse, but given time I am sure it will fill up. One of the first things I did upon my return was to let my elderly father know that this... 更多
My father served in Korea 1951-52, he never talked about it much, so it was wonderful to see these exhibits and read the historical info. I loved the library.
Sometimes the Korean War seems to get shortchanged and you may not have learned much about it. Visit this museum to learn more about the heroes and campaigns of the war and see some interesting memorabilia.

The displays are very well written and understandable and there are the expected artifacts. I know more than most people about... 更多
Free. Museum is within walking distance of all Lincoln related sites. Exceptionally clean and organized starting with events leading up to war through current events. Halfway point there is an activity area for kids to play war and dress up. We had kids 4,7, 14 so good for younger ones to keep them interested. Artwork and displays are top notch.... 更多
There are lots of photos, and chronological history all over this museum. It is located down town just across from the Old State Capitol. Their programs on Sunday afternoons bring in speakers who open new light onto the Korean War from both sides. It is well organized and well presented.
