Voted as an Attraction of the
Year in Alabama by the Alabama Mountain Lakes
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, enclosed are 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
