  • Just a fantastic museum and well done as many have said. One of the best I have ever been to. It was a beautiful day so also walked the grounds and checked out the different memorial areas.

  • Medal of Honor recipients and being able to see what they did to earn it. There is so much to see you could spend hours there. Very moving experience.

  • My second visit, my kids first. We walked through each decade, listening to audio and reading about what our soldier's endured. The displays were excellent and kept everyone interested in learning...

  • So much to learn. Truly an amazing museum. Could spend hours learning and walking back in time to see the past. The artwork is stunning. The statues are life like. If you have an opportunity to visit, invite a veteran or current soldier so personal and so many real life stories. A must see on your Ft. Benning visit. It is free to see but please be generous and make a nice donation.
  • I don't really care for museums. But this was a very eye evening, heart wrenching, and educational visit. I'm going back tomorrow to see the rest of it. It was such a beautiful place and a great reminder of how lucky we are as a nation because of the sacrifices the men and women in uniform made for us. I would add more pictures but it's better to experience it in person. All the employees were just so kind.
  • Surprisingly well maintained and well organized👍🏻 There is no entrance fee, but a donation box at the entrance, so you can do it. When I said it was my first visit, the staff kindly gave me a brief overview. It's a bit out of the way, but it was a really valuable experience and I had a meaningful time🤩
  • If you’re into military history, or even just history, then this is the place for you. This museum does a great job thoughtfully covering the history of the USA Infantry from inception to modern times. The displays are amazing and the artifacts are plentiful. I really enjoyed the modern exhibit and the WWI exhibit. The entry is free but I would recommend giving a donation by either cash or card. There’s a great gift shop and food options as well. Make sure you give yourself a few hours to really be able to see everything.
  • One of the most impressive museums dedicated to the Infantry and maneuver. Check out the poppy fields art exhibit; has a theater with IMAX, third in the state, restaurant is not yet reopened but it is nice. Amazing exhibits. Very proud to work for the military
