  • Amazing collection of military uniforms and items. Run by volunteers and EVERYTHING was donated! I am a military collector and Veteran, and had no idea this place existed. Found a brochure at a rest stop and decided to check it out. You will not be disappointed! What an amazing tribute to our veterans! THANK YOU
  • So much history here. I loved it. Hoping to go back and see it again. A must see stop! No ticket price. They take donations.
  • Hidden gem - if you’re looking for a place to hold a meeting, the venue here is great! Comfortable seating, two projection screens, PA system, - extremely accommodating staff, and very clean. The Museum is wonderful! Costs go to support the museum!
  • There's a lot of history packed into this place, and the best part about it are the veterans who welcome you in and show you around. It will be even better when their expansion is complete. Check it out when you're in Athens!
  • This was our first visit but apparently they are just finishing up some big renovations. The museum used to be located in the railroad depot building and now it's inside a much bigger climate controlled one in the same parking lot. We had a great time looking through the collection and seeing the displays. It is well worth the trip to see so many pieces of United States military history. The staff were also very friendly and helpful while they answered questions and volunteered interesting facts.
