  • Excellent museum. The displays had a ton of information in them. I also didn't realize it was free!! Major plus. They also had a very nice display on their grounds for Memorial Day weekend.
  • This museum is a must see if you are in the Fayetteville area. It is truly tasteful and filled with displays and information about our Airborne and Special Operations covering from WW1 through today. The have several shows in their simulator (although beware if you can't take similar conditions to a rollercoaster) and a nice gift shop with special items not to be found elsewhere. There is also a K-9 memorial and a special section in an additional building covering the service members from North Carolina lost in various theaters of operation.
  • A cultural icon of a storied military town. Done with class and great research. A must-have for locals and visitors
  • Very well done, just as good as the infantry museum. The staff were helpful and the building just had a good feel to it.
  • Absolutely worth the trip! After your visit you will understand the story behind our heroes.
