We traveled to Carrabelle,Fl to visit the Gordon Johnston Museum. This museum recognizes the amphibious forces that served during WW11. I thought all branches of service were well represented. The docents in attendance seemed pretty knowledgeable. Lots of interesting memorbilia on display. It's located in an old school and is quite large. Admission is by donation so be generous when...

Located in an old school, this museum has all kinds of WWII memorabilia including many things from the Camp. Carrabelle is where the soldiers trained for D-Day, from parachuting down on Dog Island to amphibious landings. It is an amazing glimpse at history and the volunteers there have a wealth of knowledge and stories. Leave a donation as there is... More

A very informative and well done museum concerning WWII and the training that took place at Camp Gordon Johnston to prepare troops for the D-Day invasion. It is housed in an old school building and staffed by volunteers who were very knowledgeable of the history of the military in the area.

This is a must see in the area. Even if you are not a history buff, you need to tour the museum. We were given a personal tour and I found it to be very interesting. This museum is better than some of the WWII museums in France. Don't miss it!

I have been a World Wat II Historian since childhood. My family lost 2 sons during the war. While traveling down Hwy 98 East, our group came across the Camp Gordon Johnson Museum. If you like history and if you ever lost a relative during WWII this is a must place to visit. As I stated at the first of... More

If you like WWII history you will like this museum. Not many people knew that this area was used for practice like the Normandy invasion. They are still finding artifacts and many are in the museum. The people that work there know a lot about the history around this community.
