About us:

The Vermilion County War Museum occupies almost 14,000 square feet, and displays memorabilia and artifacts from the Revolutionary War to Operation Iraqi Freedom. It resides in the old Carnegie Library building.  

 The City of Danville turned over this vacant historic landmark to the Museum in 1998, and, through the efforts of a great number of people who donated thousands of hours of labor, it was restored to its' present condition. 

We opened to the public on Veteran's Day, 1999. Since that day we have had over 10,000 visitors, from every state and many foreign countries. We have over 400 members, many of which donate their time to the museum. New display materials and artifacts arrive constantly. With the addition of an elevator, we are accessible to everyone.
