  • Very nice exterior and building interior as well. It's on the smaller side but is nicely done for exhibits being paid on donations. One of the best places to visit in Fayetteville. 
  • This is a great and interesting place. We have been there in an Army retirement ceremony from a close friend of mine. 
  • The best part is the C47 hanging from the museum. Gives good chronology of events, and great artifacts. Better for older kids, and grown up old kids. Not very hands on for the younger ones.

  • I brought youngest daughter and loved it. Her dad was a Green Beret and this helped give her more history. Our oldest is coming to visit and we are bringing her and Dad who is 77. We are sure to enjoy it again this time with dad who can actually answer their questions.
  • 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.
  • The displays really made you feel like you were travelling through history. One of the best military museums out there.
  • Great display of history. I am always amazed to what the museum adds for the general public as well as military families to see and learn.
  • They do a great ceremony for Vietnam vets, with a medal. It is great. The exhibits are nice and the restrooms are clean.
