The third member of the Kenosha Public Museum network is the Civil War Museum. Wait, a civil war museum in Kenosha? Yes, and it does a respectful job telling the story of the people of the upper middle west during America’s darkest time. Like the Kenosha Public Museum, the displays would make many other, better financed, museums feel a bit inadequate. The museum is located right next door to the public museum and is just steps from Kenosha’s beaches and lakefront.
