  • 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🤩
  • 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
  • Wow! What a beautiful place. This place is a great place to spend a few hours. I’m so glad I made it. Beautiful exhibits and real to life displays. So much information packed into such a great display.
