  • The US Army Women's Museum is important because it captures the extensive history of women contributing to the success of our nation during peace and war. The museum does not adequately paint a picture of the struggle for equality our female warriors have endured to gain the positions they now hold, nor does it display any of the recent gains in terms of expanded service in combat arms units. You won't find any Ranger tab bearing females in the pedestrian displays. The art gallery has some nice pieces reflecting women's service on display. If you are in the Ft. Lee area, I recommend checking out the U.S. Army Quartermaster Museum and the U.S. Army Women's Museum together. They are adjacent to one another and you can casually tour both in about 90 minutes. Civilians can obtain visitor passes at the Ft. Lee gate and both museums are within a 1/4 mile of the visitor's center.
  • This museum really focused on women's contributions from very early in history to the acceptance to women's value and contributions in the miltary... both non-combat thru today's female soldiers. (Note... This was an Army facility and didn't acknowledge any other military branch contributions by women).
  • Thank you SFC Peters for making our visit so special!!!!
  • My mom @I visited Friday August 5 2016 and was very impresed. Being prior military I was never stationed at Ft Lee so I had no idea such a museum existed. To see how the military has changed over the decades and the roles women played was very interesting to me. The uniforms they once wore as opposed to the ones I wore was still such a big difference. I'm glad I got to visit. I left there with lots of pictures and history all inclusive.
  • This is place is awesome....
