Travel Trunks

Our Travel Trunk program offers anyone the opportunity to have pieces of the Museum available to enhance the learning experience of their audience.

Travel Trunks are a great way for your patrons, students, and guests to build their historical thinking skills, ask questions about the past, and share knowledge.  

Each trunk contains uniforms, artifacts, multi-media, lesson plans and activities that illustrate the Wisconsin soldier's experience in one of the following conflicts:

  • Civil War

  • World War I

  • WWII: European Theater 

  • WWII: Pacific Theater

  • Korea 

  • Vietnam 

  • Coming Soon! - Gulf War

Travel Trunks may be rented for two weeks and may be picked up at the Wisconsin Veterans Museum or shipped directly to your location.  The cost to rent a travel trunk is $25 (shipping costs are extra).

To schedule your travel trunk rental, fill out a request form and email it to

The Wisconsin Veterans Museum is an educational activity of the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs.
