I had no idea this museum existed. My niece found out about it and we decided to take a trip. The exterior is interesting but we weren't sure about it. Then we went inside and we were pleasantly surprised! The first sections are setup as slave quarters were. The woman, Georgia, behind the desk was incredibly knowledgable about Joel Chandler...

This is one of those museums that if you are an Uncle Remus or Song of the South fan, you should stop by. It gave a lot of history and was really fun. It doesn't take more than an hour.

What a delightful surprise behind these doors! We were enthralled by the wonderful Miss Georgia who welcomed us to this charming museum. Thinking this would be a 15-30 minute stop, we were treated to over an hour of history and storytelling. Could have stayed all day! This is a MUST stop if you are in the area. I will go... More

Wonderful little museum constructed from slave cabins, with exhibits of Joel Chandler Harris' books and antique items from the era. Harris wrote down stories he had heard from enslaved people in the area when he was young. The docent (volunteer, I assumed) was knowledgeable and interesting. There are other things to do nearby, including several antique shops and a good... More

Lots of history and original books they will not let you take photos inside but for five dollars well worth going in to recommend this to all

We were in the area for the driving tour of famous authors (Alice Walker in addition to Joel Chandler Harris). The museum was part of the tour. Frankly, we didn't expect much but were pleasantly surprised. The museum manager greeted us at the door and talked us through the entire museum (consisting of three rooms with different related themes about... More

This is a great little town, that includes the museum. The visitor center staff are freindly and there are rabbit statues all throughout downtown.

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!
