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.

We were heading south, in a hurry and I had to bully my husband to drive into town to find this museum (especially as he'd had a deprived childhood and never read the books) but it turned out to be one of the highlights of our road trip. Apart from telling the background of the Brer Rabbit books, it also... More

The museum is small but there is a lot in this tiny place. I have lived in the area for several years now and got to go there when I had family here from California. My cousin is a school teacher and she was able to bring some things back with her to share with the students. I myself learned... More

The first room in the museum is focused on Uncle Remus, with cute carvings depicting moments from the stories. We didn't have kids with us, but I think looking at these displays with children would be a lot of fun. The other two rooms have collections of old household items, books and newspaper articles - I think these might be... More
