The story of Albany is best told through the lives of the people that have called this area home. From the Creek Natives that gave us the name Thronateeska, to the bustling railroad that carried us into the modern age and gave us our museum, the exhibits reflect who we were and who we are today.

The history of this region is a diverse story of exploration and development, hard times and prosperity, community action and individual achievement. Thronateeska's History Museum exhibits reflect the people, the cultures, and the dreams that have made the story of Southwest Georgia one worth sharing.

Georgia Museum of Surveying and Mapping

The Georgia Museum of Surveying and Mapping demonstrates the history of exploration and expansion in Georgia using more than 100 maps and artifacts from across the state and world.

Visitors can learn about the continued importance of surveying and mapping professionals in our daily lives and how they shaped our cities, counties, and state.

The museum was relocated from Warrenton, Georgia, and is now a permanent feature of the Thronateeska Heritage Foundation, Inc.

Our Mission:

Thronateeska Heritage Center inspires wonder and stimulates exploration of science and South Georgia's history by providing a dynamic learning experience through an interactive science center and museum.
