WE're glad you enjoyed the park and museum. Be sure to stop in whenever you travel between Indianapolis and Chicago. We think it's nicer than most interstate rest areas!

We spent quite a bit of time walking all around the Park. The museum was closed the day we were there. There was a small building with stuffed animals and information on plants and very informed people to help with questions.

Very interesting to stop in and really devote some time to reading and learning about a very important footnote in history which happened right in the middle of Indiana. Worth the $5 for museum admission and the time to go through and learn it all....More

Tippecanoe and Tyler Too! A campaign slogan that references a battle that is almost forgotten today. In 1811, Native Americans were in trouble - a seemingly endless wave of white settlers were fanning out from their initial footholds on the East Coast. Every year it...More

A nice museum with enthusiastic staff. Grounds are well kept and while the battlefield is fairly small, it is quite interesting with several monuments. Great diorama in the museum with a electric light battlefield presentation - old school, love it!

A beautiful property on which the battle occured in 1811. There are grave stones for some of the officers killed there, but sadly, none for the American Indians who died. Read the signs to learn about the battle. The oak trees are estimated to be...More

Nice fairly small Indiana early 1800s memorial. You can walk over a bridge over a creek to see the battlefield! Monuments have interesting information on them! Appears that they have activities but was there in off season.

This museum was filled with artifacts and history related to the war between Tecumseh and the military. Well worth the time.

Beautiful setting, but not really much there. It would be lovely for a picnic. We didn't get a chance to see the museum (it was closed the day we were there). Would come back to see it, though.
