  • This place is amazing. The exhibits are incredibly well done and detailed. It's an educational and touching experience to walk through the exhibits. The whole family can get something out of it.
  • Amazing, most interesting military museum for all ages. It was very well laid out, most realistic exhibits that kept both a 6 yr old and 9 yr old interested so that the grown ups could do the reading. Very great artifacts! Great knowledge to be shared for all. Perfect pit stop for a long drive, not far from 95.
  • The Airborne and Special Operations Museum is an awesome addition to Fayetteville and a wonderful tribute to our nation's many heroes. From the simulator to the displays, it is a great museum to go alone or with your children. Of you go during May, you will see the wonderful Field of Honor Display.
  • They do a great ceremony for Vietnam vets, with a medal. It is great. The exhibits are nice and the restrooms are clean.
  • This is a world class museum! It has everything that makes a museum great, from the knowledgeable staff, to the gigantic screen in the theater, everything is so organised - it's in a chronological order, and on top of that the place is photogenic both the outside of the museum, and the hallway... You need at least 3-4 hours to cover the exhibits, and learn something new. And who said it's free???
