Alabama Veterans Museum & Archives reviews
We found this place by accident a while back, but didn't have the opportunity to visit until today. It's located off the beaten path, but close to the downtown area of Athens. As far as museums go...

All veterans will enjoy the museum. Take time to visit and spend a couple of hours at least. If you are visiting the Space center at Huntsville, I recommend a quick stop in Athens at the Veterans...

Admission is donation only but please donate! There was the sweetest veteran man there to give information about anything you wanted today. The place isn't super huge but packed with tons of great stuff. So many uniforms, weapons, metals, various equipment and artifacts and information inside. Don't forget the stuff outside too! Inside is in order by war and there's more coming soon. My older kids are 8 and 9 and enjoyed themselves also. They have big clean bathrooms, water fountain and little gift shop as well.
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.
This museum is a hidden gem! The greatest asset are the informative, engaging, and entertaining docents. Our family spent about two hours here with Bob as our guide and all enjoyed the tour and commentary immensely. We all learned something new and we’re impressed by the organization (from revolutionary war to present day conflicts) and the quality of the exhibits. For parents this is a great place to visit with kids- our children ranging in age from 6-11 were all captivated. Our docent, Bob engaged them and thoughtfully answered their questions and pointed out particular areas he knew would interest them. This will not be our last visit- so much more to learn!
Took family from out of town here on a Saturday morning. There is no entry fee but there is a donation box. The museum is really nice. I hadn't been here in years and had never been in the new building. There was a man that came over to us and gave us a guided tour.
