West Georgia Museum of Tallapoosa

This museum has something for all ages. A look back at the late 1800 early 1900 era, replicas of old stores, a barber shop and bank, will take you back to an earlier time. For the youngsters, a whole assemblage of dinosaurs greets visitors as they enter the museum. With a 30 ft. Tyrannosaurus Rex towering over several other smaller dinosaurs, it is indeed an awesome site that will inspire young, inquisitive minds. A horse drawn buggy and a restored 1923 Ford Peddlers wagon will bring out the realism of that long ago period. Hours: Tuesday-Friday 9-4, Saturday 9-5. Closed
