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 my local veterans, gift shop, meeting facilities, monthly coffee call and much more.

Voted as an Attraction of the Year in Alabama by the Alabama Mountain Lakes Tourist Association


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 nationís 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.

In order to help raise funds for the expansion the museum will hold its 1st Militaria Collectors Show. Our show will be held on 18 & 19 Sept, 2015 and will feature military items from all wars. We also have some very special guests attending. We invite you to participate in our show, click here for registration forms and other needed information.

We look forward to working with you to ensure our first show is a success. Please contact the museum for more information @ 256-771-7578
