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...

I have been twice. The first time an older gentleman took us through and gave an informative narrative of the entire museum. Very enjoyable. When I went the second time there was no guide. So a guide must not be standard. There are thousands of artifacts in addition to the "Band of Brothers" section. Be sure and watch the video... More

Its not very expensive and is attached to the welcome center of the chamber of commerce. Want a tip? After you have looked around make sure you go to the... More

As a fan of the Band of Brothers series, we had to see this place. We're also interested in the WW2-history which makes this place perfect. A lot of interesting exhibits, nice employees and a good gift shop makes up a great museum. The best part however was the stable that the BoB lived in during the war, that had... More

This museum contains memorabilia from the Civil War, WWI, and WWII of local veterans. One amazing exhibit is the English stable that housed soldiers known as, "The Band of Brothers." The horse stable was disassembled for transport from England, and reassembled in this former beautifully restored RR depot. Main focus is on the history of US paratroopers since Camp Currahee...
