I have passed by this museum for years, this weekend I finally went inside. This was quite surprisingly a neat little stop. It has really turned into a real museum, instead of just a building. What made it best was the museum curator, who was...More

Best $5 admission ticket ! So worth about an hr of time. Covers the life of Joel Chandler Harris' from teenager in Eatonton to a writer for the Atalanta Constitution. For the literary or history curious. Not a place for small children.

Georgia brings Uncle Remus alive for young and old alike. She is so good that I would recommend scheduling a visit around her. The recent addition of the carvings take the museum to whole new level. Stop by today and plan to spend 2-3 hours.

What a charming little museum this is! Housed on the property of Joseph Turner, the little boy in the Uncle Remus Tales. The museum is actually a log cabin that has been created by putting together 3 former slave cabins. The shadow boxes that highlight...More
