  • Extensive exhibits from all periods of American history. IMAX theater is a nice extra feature. Countless outside monuments for the fallen and past regiments. The first 100 yards exhibit is the most powerful exhibit in I've ever experienced. The best museums I've ever been to.
  • This is a great place to visit to learn more about the army. It is very educational to see what the recruits have gone through past and present. It's great for all ages, must see if you are in the area.
  • Comprehensive displays of the history of our infantry. Both my father and now my son are army. Very educational and beautifully done!
  • This is one of the most phenomenal museums I have ever visited! Be sure to plan to spend plenty of time so that you can see everything they have to offer. Food in the restaurant was also good.
  • The sense of history and respect here is amazing. The displays are very well done and show war from a more human perspective than movies and TV. I was disappointed that the civil war exhibit was closed when I went there, but they must have had a good reason. I would go again if I were to be nearby again in the future.
