View primitive portraits, landscape and genre paintings and western art. Discover scrimshaw, a whaling art; weathervanes, cigar store figures, trade signs, and Crowell bird carvings. The collection of Currier and Ives prints, toys and antique tools are sure to delight visitors of all ages.
March to the Military Museum, a reconstruction of the Revolutionary War period building called the Temple and view the Josiah K. Lilly, Jr. collections of firearms and Military Miniatures. The firearms display traces the history of weapons from the Colonial period through the Spanish American War. The hand-painted Miniatures, over 2,000 in number, depict the uniforms and colors of military units important in American military history from 1620 to 1900. Also located in the Military Museum are the Plantation's Native American collections and a display of American flag replicas.
