Voted as an Attraction of the Year in Alabama by the Alabama Mountain Lakes Tourist Association
Welcome to the Alabama Veterans Museum and Archives. Located in Athens Alabama, we are proud to be a part of our military history with a large exhibit center, guided tours provided by local veterans, gift shop, meeting facilities, monthly coffee call and much more.
The Alabama Veterans Museum & Archives collection contains an impressive display of artifacts from the Revolutionary War until present day. Visitors can walk among the actual uniforms, medals, photos and weapons; hear stories and experiences about the nation’s wars from men and women who were actually there. With over 10,000 visitors last year, the Alabama Veterans Museum & Archives has become a vital part of Athens Alabama, not only do we draw the local public to our museum to educate and teach of the sacrifices what it takes to keep our country free, we have visitors from all over the United States and other countries.
Donations of precious military artifacts are received continually from veterans and their families who wish to see them preserved for future generations, we consider it an honor to do this. In order to continue to preserve, maintain and grow, our facility needs to expand.
The Alabama Veterans Museum and Archives is conveniently located in Athens Alabama on Pryor Street, 2 blocks west of Athens State College.
