This museum was a delightful and interesting educational experience! Our WW2 veteran guide was so knowledgeable and helpful. Our son was a Currahee until they demobilized the 2nd brigade.

If you're a fan of "Band of Brothers" or the airborne, this is a must visit museum. It's pretty small, you can see most of it in an hour or two, but if you were to immerse yourself in the details, you could spend all day here. Tons of artifacts! Most of the artifacts are inside an original farm house... More

This "little museum" is well done. This is where the real life Band of Brothers trained to WW2. Allow 2 hours or more to take it in.

My wife and I popped in here whilst in Toccoa visiting friends. We joined a couple of gentlemen who were being shown round by one of the chaps from the museum. I have to say he was excellent telling the full story of the museum and Toccoa and the training of the parachute troops that went on during WW2. Embarrassingly,... More

Not being men or from a military family, we still went, enjoyed and thought remarkable the local history including the local Olympian Paul Anderson, the silhouette artist who was famous for his work despite being stricken with rheumatoid arthritis, George Washington Hitt, who had a very positive mind and was the first mayor of Toccoa, and other notable local persons...

I visited this museum with my son in March of 2014. I was very impressed with the quality of this facility located off the beaten path. Having read and watched "Band of Brothers", I was aware of the role that Camp Toccoa had played in training airborne troops during WWII. It was great to see how the city of Toccoa... More

This museum is a must see! It honors the paratroopers, "band of brothers", that trained at camp Toccoa during WWII. The exhibits are very informative and the original stable from England that was home to many men during the war added a uniqueness to this tribute. The attendants for the museum are proud of their museum and rightfully so. Be... More

Very interesting tour. A lot revolves around the Band of Brothers, the first US paratroopers who trained in Toccoa before the invasion (D-day)

The paratroopers represented in the HBO series and the movie "Saving Private Ryan" trained in the NE Ga hills outside of Toccoa. The museum presents excellent exhibits of the experiences of thosemen during and after WWII, including a reconstructed portion of the stables in which they were housed in England awaiting D-day. In addition there are exhibits honoring the members... More

Spent last week in Clarksville GA and took a quick trip to Toccoa and stayed the whole afternoon in the incredibly informative, educational and historical Curahee Military Museum. The 101st Airborne units that were part of D-Day 1944 trained in Toccoa before going to England. Their mountain hikes have been replicated by current paratroopers for years -- this being hallowed...
