Lots of weapons, uniforms and other memorabilia. Most outstanding of all was the genuine stable from... More

We went to Toccoa to see this museum. It had a stable in the center of it that had been disassembled in Europe and sent to Toccoa. During WWII, had lived there and its historical value brought it to Toccoa. The museum is a wonderful tribute to the men from that area who have served our country.

The Currahee Military Museum is an amazing small museum in Toccoa, Ga. The building was built around some of the stables which were imported from Aldbourne England and housed paratroopers from the 101st Airborne during WWII while they prepared for the Normandy invasion. Each stable has several exhibits including personal items donated by some of the paratroopers themselves. There was... More

Take a look at the many events that has shaped this community. From Paul Anderson, the World's Strongest Man, to Doc Holliday, to the 101st Airborne who trained in Toccoa - you will even get to see the original stable where men hid during WWII. This stable was flown over from the UK and rebuilt to its original look.

This place is most definitely worth the off the beaten trail trip. There are many wonderful mementos of paratrooper training in WW2. Be prepared to walk thru with a lump in your throat. Very well done. Take the time to travel down to Currahee Mountain and the beginnings of the memorial that is at the remains of the original Camp... More

The Museum is easy to find and contains a great deal of local history. It has some excellent history of the Toccoa area, as well as the Paratrooper training camp at Camp Toccoa. There are wonderful artifacts and very interesting displays. As a second generation Paratrooper, I kept a lump in my throat for a good deal of the visit.... More

Although it is a small museum it is well worth the trip and $8 entrance fee. The museum starts out as a small town history museum in the old train depot then you move into the Currahee Museum and you see the horse stable the "Band of Brothers" lived in while in England. The stable was saved from demolition and... More
