Just reading other posts, there seems to be a few flight ready Apollo command modules now on display, including:
Skylab rescue command module at Kennedy Space Center;
the one on the full stack at Johnson Space Center.
Are there others that just never quite made it to space?

There's also an unused CSM at the National Air and Space Museum.
I don't know how "flight-ready" the CSM at NASM or JSC are. As I recall, the JSC spacecraft (115A) was in the final stages of assembly when funding was cut. The NASM one is listed as having been used in acoustic tests, so I don't know if it was ever "flight-ready".
Whenever I wonder about the current location of 60s Space Race hardware, I always go to the Field Guide to American Spacecraft. Not only do I find it an invaluable reference, it's also a handy vacation planner.
