The museum is in a nearly empty school building, with exhibits occupying several classrooms. I had hope to get a feel for how Comp Gordon Johnson impacted and used this vast area, and in this I was disappointed. There were a number of uniforms, medal, and this of this nature, but virtually no machinery, and virtually nothing in the way... More

This museum may be small but it really educated me a bit more of what I knew about WWll. To think the beach we had enjoyed the day before had once been the training ground for the battle of normandy was very cool to learn. We also learned that they are trying to build a new museum right across the... More

What a wonderful way to spend the anniversary of D-DAY in this museum that honors and details the training the soldiers and nurses received on Carrabelle Beach. The museum as of this review is located in the old Carrabelle school, but will moving to its own location soon. The museum is thoughtfully arranged and has a lot of local information... More

If you are interested in World War II and the training of the men for the D-Day invasion this is a don't miss stop.The locals... More

We visited the Camp Gordon Johnston Museum recently.The facility is somewhat difficult to find. We had to ask directions and even then it was difficult. The museum is located in an old high school building, which seems to be a temporary location. Hopefully they will build a more suitable building. The material displayed is interesting, but there should be more... More

This place was full of pictures, artifacts and very interesting information on the war. It is in an old school and there are many rooms that have things to see. The volunteers who greet you have a wealth of information that they like sharing with you. There is a lot to read so you have to choose what you want... More

In WWII 250,000 men (and women) went through training at this location. The main course was amphibious landings. Some men trained for landing in Europe for D-Day while others trained for landings in the Pacific. The terrain around this huge camp included sandy beaches as well as dense jungle-like and swampy terrain. The museum contains a wealth of materials from... More
