The Currahee Military Museum celebrates the lives and contributions of the 6000 "Toccoa Men" who trained on Currahee Mountain, outside of Toccoa, GA in the northeastern part of the state, during World War II. The $10 admission is cheap considering all the work that went...More

Seems a little pricey for what they have. Not an impressive museum, but nice. Price should be like $3.00 a person, then it would generate much higher revenues. The elasticity of demand is not something the operators understand.

You enter at the train station and the tourist center. Talk to the folks behind the counter and you will get a quick bit of history and maybe a short preview. The space is about 14,000 square feet and personally I found it quite engaging....More

If you love history, you'll love this museum. The highlight of course is the Camp Toccoa exhibit, but there are other excellent exhibits about local history. Very nicely done.

This is a "must-see" if you have seen the "BAND of BROTHERS" series on TV. The exhibit will have so much more meaning. Military buffs will also enjoy the exhibits. It was interesting to see that some of the equipment used by WW II soldiers...More
