My dad and I drove two hours to visit tunnel hill for his birthday and we both thoroughly enjoyed. The tunnel, museum, and house were certainly interesting, but what made it all come alive was the excellent job our tour guide, Matt, did in explaining...More
On a side trip to Dalton, a docent at the visitor center recommended we see the “Tunnel”. Just a short drive from downtown, but well worth the effort. In the main building you’ll find the heritage museum which has a small but nice display of...More
What a hidden treasure! I have driven I-75 for years and never stopped to visit this great historic site until now. The museum had a lot to offer Civil War and history buffs and I loved the self-guided cell phone narratives. I learned a lot....More
The museum is small, but has some interesting pieces and a cell phone tour. We were able to tour the general store, Clisby Austin house, and the tunnel through a great deal we purchased on Groupon. The tunnel tour (via golf cart) was the most...More
The tunnel and the story are interesting. The house and the general store I have seen before. The main problem is that they need more help. Two people to run the museum and give tours. We waited a half hour for someone to come back...More
If you love history, this is a must see. The museum contains many interesting artifacts and explanation of an important historical event: the great locomotive chase and Sherman's March to the Sea. Tour guide did excellent job explaining the history.
Judy was an excellent tour guide! Getting to go thru the tunnel and hear all the amazing stories was very cool. Even saw a tiny snake on our tour! Definitely recommend doing the combo deal for $10 and you get to see everything!
I used a Groupon to take this tour and got a great deal for 6 of us. Ron was our tour guide and on top of giving us tons of interesting stories and information, he was pretty hilarious. We went on a weekday when it...More

Note: You don't HAVE to pay for a tour of the tunnel. If you stop at the visitor center, and tell them you want to visit the tunnel by yourself, they will give you a print out of the "script" the tour guides do. (I think they charge maybe $5) Then you can drive right up to the entrance to the tunnel and walk through on your own. That's what we did and we ended up having the tunnel to ourselves. It was a great experience
We took the cart out to through the tunnel. It cost a couple of dollars extra but not that much. Well worth the ride. Our 'tour guide' was very knowledgable and we very much felt the extra couple of bucks were worth it... More
We took the cart out to through the tunnel. It cost a couple of dollars extra but not that much. Well worth the ride. Our 'tour guide' was very knowledgable and we very much felt the extra couple of bucks were worth it. Would recommend it highly! There was not set time, just when someone arrives and wants that service from what we could tell. As soon as we decided that we wanted the 'tour', the guide took us out right away. It wasn't very busy that particular day so that may have made a difference. Very friendly folks and very helpful. Go for it!! :-) Hope this has helped.
