If you like history you will like this museum. Lot's to see and learn about here. I liked the story they told about still finding war items around this area. They talked about someone finding a mine in their yard and taking it up town by towing it behind their pickup truck with a chain. When they arrived at the... More

We did not expect much as we are from New Orleans and have been to the National WW2 museum, but this one was well done. We did not know that The area there was used to train men with the amphibious boats and had a base there. Lots and lots of personal memorabilia throughout. We spent about 2 hours there... More

Lots of newspapers from the time, pictures and stories of the locals who enlisted. This area used to train landing troops for D-Day. My dad was 101st Airborne, and jumped on D-Day, so not relative to his training but I was very interested in what these young men endured. If you read everything will take couple of hours or more....

This museum is worth the stop. Lots of artifacts. This area was a major training area for WWII pilots, D-day & so much more. Be sure to watch their movie - well done & answers a lot of your questions you start to think of as you look around, plus gives much more info. No fee, does take donations.

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

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
