I had watched the HBO series Band of Brothers and always wanted to visit the WWII camp. Had no idea that it was gone. but to my surprise there was a museum in town. the museum was great with uniforms, pictures and even the barns that the soldiers slept in. Wonderful place! I recommend highly!

Growing up in Toccoa, I always knew the history of the area. When I had a guest in town one weekend, we decided to visit the museum as a fun winter day activity. I have to be honest and say that I had fairly low expectations for the museum; however, those were very quickly shattered. The museum is packed full... More

Wow - this museum is full of WWII history - the 'Band of Brothers' movie documents soldiers training in this area: opening scene from Currahee Mountain run. Museum has great substance: Soldiers donated their uniforms and more. Part of their barracks in England was taken to pieces and reassembled inside the museum. Amazing. Well worth a trip!!

This was the most interesting small ww2 museum we have ever visited. It had a very local flavor. Lots of artifacts, pictures, and banners. Reconstructed ww2 barracks. Located in old rr terminal. We spent 2 hours there.

I enjoyed visiting this museum. It is small compared to some but it still had a lot to see. It is in a old train station. Had a gift shop. A lot of small rooms with stuff from the different wars. Some had films in it showing the history. There is a camp that they are working on to make... More

I was really amazed at the quality of the exhibits, especially for the WWII era. Items are beautifully displayed. Toccoa should be proud to have such a historically accurate museum.

We are a military family. Husband served with 101st Airborne, so this place was sacred for him. Nice museum with LOTS of memorabilia! And apparently it's growing! They have expansion plans in the work. The museum also speaks to the local history with a really nice area dedicated to local historical figures. We enjoyed it very much!

As a history bug, especially the 101AB, I had to visit Toccoa when I got the opportunity. Those who are familiar with the Band of Brothers will know Toccoa from episode one. This is where the training of the initial cadre of a number of PIR's took place including the 506th. The museum is a fantastic source of information going... More

I finally got to this museum in January. The main draw of the museum is the reconstructed stables that were moved from the UK. This is s great part of the history of airborne units that trained at Camp Toccoa. The museum also has a very nice collection of relics tracing the history of units and people who trained at...
