  • This museum packs a lot of learning in a small space! I had no idea the role St Simons Island played in WWII. At one point, they were building one Liberty Ship every 30 days! They also built air...

  • We selected the duo tickets which covered entrance to the St. Simon's Lighthouse and the WWII museum (2 different locations). The WWII Museum was excellent and the gentleman in the gift shop was very knowledgeable with regard to local history. There are two buildings, the gift shop which houses the timeline, theatre, and a small interactive display area then the 2nd building is the old light station which provides several rooms with interactive display/activities highlighting radar training, blimps, Liberty ships, and more. Plan to spend a few hours between the two locations. There is a covered picnic area on site and a beach volleyball court for those that want to take advantage of it.
  • Such an interesting museum well worth your time and the minimal admission fee!! Please check it out you won't be disappointed. One of the only home town museum highlighting the war effort located in SE Georgia.
