I spent a little over a week in Carrabelle on a hunting trip in 'Tate's Hell ' area, and learned of this Museum at the B+B I stayed at. As a multi-generation Floridian, and history fanatic, I was floored by this Museum I had no idea even existed! I visited on my last day in the area, and totally messed... More

They have one of a kind WWII artifacts throughout the museum. Plan on spending a couple of hours here to see everything and watch... More

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
