What a treat to find. We had family visit and on a lark decided to stop in and visit Uncle Remus Museum in Eatonton. The lead caretaker was entertaining and absolutely knew her history. Was really surprised at how much fun it was and seeing the artifacts was so special. A true treasure for the town of Eatonton.

Museum was small but informative. Ms Georgia told some good stories, possibly could have told them all day. The museum is pretty small but has some great pieces including some original watercolors from Disney and the original ad that Harris responded to. Other than the Brer Rabbit statue the grounds aren't much.

I got dragged in to visiting the Uncle Remus Museum in Eatonton by my travelling buddy, but so glad I did. Lots of history on author Joel Chandler Harris, a fun place to visit. Small town, small parking lot, small museum means no endless walking to see this treasure. The stories told by the docent are worth the stop alone!

Who hasn't heard of Brer Rabbit, Brer Fox, Brer Bear and Uncle Remus? Joel Chandler Harris wrote about all these critters and the man who told the stories to children. The museum is a wonderful place for children and adults alike to make all these stories come to life. Delightful.

We just had to venture off the beaten path to the Uncle Remus Museum in Eatonton GA so that we could purchase a Song of the South DVD. We enjoyed chatting with the very friendly woman who was managing the museum that day. After a small donation we wandered through the small but interesting museum of artifacts, depictions, artwork, and... More

As we were driving through Eatonton, we decided to stop at this museum. Though outside it appeared there would be a lot about Joel Chandler Harris' stories, there was very little, though a number of Harris' books in different languages were on display. The museum is more about how Harris lived and his mentor, Joseph Turner. We did learn Harris... More

Visited this quaint little museum as a break on a road trip. Glad I stopped as the lady guide brought back to life the brer rabbit stories I read as a small child. I was transported back 45 years! From what I remember it was free entry and voluntary donation. Excellent stock of the books both in 'plain English' and... More

The best part of the experience is the story telling - after all the museum is dedicated to tales, and one looks forward to hearing the tales. The interior also includes artifacts and displays from the time period in which the stories were told on a nearby plantation and recorded by Joel Chandler Harris.

We took our youth group from church geocaching. This was one of the spots where a cache was hidden. On impulse I took them inside to tour the museum as many had never heard of Uncle Remus. They learned quite a bit about the history of our area that day. Great place to visit. There is a token donation for... More

Hope you are lucky enough to be there when Ms. Georgia is there. She tells the best stories and sings "Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah" like none other.
