My wife and I went to this museum. It was had a nice display. The best part was a video that was playing tell the story the area played in WWII. It was incredibly interesting. The museum is worth the trip.

The Museum has a fabulous display of the history of WW II amphibious training on Florida's Forgotten Coast. From films, photographs, uniforms, weaponry, equipment, local accounts, newspapers, and much more, it tells the story of Camp Gordon Johnston as well as nearby military installations. Well...More

A little off the main drag of Hwy. 98 in Carrabelle but is well worth the visit. Only asks for a donation to enter. Great old photos, uniforms, patches and much more WWII era items. They are currently housed in a past municipal building and...More

I figured it would only take 30 to 45 minutes to do this museum. But, it was 4pm and they chased us out, and we had two rooms to go! There's a lot to see. Allow at least two hours. High value. Many displays artfully...More
