This is a small museum but the information is well presented. Stop by before your battlefield visit.

This place is near Wilson's Creek Battlefield but hasn't been open to the public in over 4 years. Maybe someone at the battlefield should remove it from the list of attractions near Springfield???

This attraction no longer exists. The NPS bought this museum a number of years ago and within the last two or three years closed it and removed all the exhibits and artifacts.

The museum at the Wilson's Creek National Battlefield is a great place for genealogical researchers. They have an amazing collection of photographs and artifacts. The staff is great! Alan is amazing. He will help you out, way over and above the call of duty!!
