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.

this is a great museum that tells the story of events in WWII that most people are aware. The volunteer working when we visited was very friendly and a true wealth of knowledge

It does not look like a normal museum because it is in an old school. However, the people there are nice and have lots of knowledge. The amount of information and real war relics are incredible. In addition, it is all right there where the army trained for D-Day. you must go see this place.

My 8- and 10-year-old grandsons visit me in Carrabelle Beach twice a year. The Camp Gordon Johnson WWII Museum tops the 'To Do' list every time! Fishing, sand castles, kayaking, and eagle spotting can wait until later in the week. That's fine with me -- I learn something new each time I take them. The 1943 photo of landing craft... More

Yeah, it was OK. I do not like military things. The setting is quite lovely if you like lovely settings which I do.

Did you every think a place you probably never heard of, in a part of Florida where no one goes could play a role in changing the course of history ? See what it was really like to train for the invasion of Europe. Photos, momentos, and period equipment give a personal touch to living through and being in World... More
