Alabama Veterans Museum and Archives

Sandra (Sandy) Thompson, Museum Director

P.O. Box 1500
100 W. Pryor St. Athens, AL 35612
Phone: (256) 771-7578

Museum Hours: 9:00 A.M. till 2:00 P.M. Monday thru Saturday (Scheduled group tours available)

     The Alabama Veterans Museum & Archives is a 4,000 square-foot staffed museum. Our 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 there in World War II, Korea, Vietnam and the present conflict.

     This 100-year-old L&N Freight Depot is a relic of a bygone time when most cotton and goods were shipped by rail. Today, the building houses the Alabama Veterans Museum & Archives. The roar of battle, the cadence of marching boots and the bomber's drone can still be heard...if only in the minds of those who view its contents.
