What a great museum - they can be boring but NOT this one which is full of very interesting stuff and the staff know a lot about the history too. 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...

Small section devoted to the local celebrities, but the World War II section is truly noteworthy. If you enjoyed Band of Brothers, you'll find it most interesting. A small library with a good volunteer research staff.

Visited the Toccoa area on antique hunting trip and was unaware of Currahee history. It was a surprise to find a locally funded/staffed museum that reflected so much history and artifacts. The featured century old horse stable where soldiers bunked in England was an excellent example of small town "Can Do attitude" with the relocation from England. Staff was friendly... More

Not really my scene but thought I'd stop in and take pics for my dad who loves WW2 stuff. Could have spent hours in that place. Tons of artifacts, flags, war history etc. my favorite was the infrared sniper rifle. Crazy for the day. Don't forget to climb curahee mountain too!

Before I visited, I read the reviews on Trip advisor. Nearly all were glowing, except for one. That one was the one that was closest to what I found. This museum could have so much potential, but sadly, it lacks. Now that the 506th/4th BCT of the 101st ABN DIV (AASLT) has stood down again, it is all that more... More
