This Museum has something for all ages!
West Georgia Museum of Tallapoosa showcases our local history by having a series of mock stores that represent businesses that used to exist in the area: an old shoe shop, a dentist office, a barber shop, log cabin, general store, and others tell a story of the rich heritage of the area.

Haralson County has a varied array of flora and fauna. A 30-foot diorama features wilflife of the region. Along with a large display of dinosaurs, including a 30-foot T-Rex that thrills youngsters for miles around.
The West Georgia museum of Tallapoosa was started when, in 1990, a group of citizens met to form an organization that would preserve both the history, and natural history of the West Georgia area. Once underway, a museum board was chosen by the Tallapoosa City Council, an old laundry building was donated, and the rest is history. From a 5,000 square foot building, the museum moved into new quarters in 2000, which now encompasses a 15,000 square foot facility that is a great asset to the West Georgia area.
