  • Very nice Army museum that chronicles the female experience from the WAC through today. They are expanding the museum so it will be getting even better
  • This is a small museum that showcases the contribution of women to the armed services from the revolutionary war to the present. It took about an hour to view everything and watch the videos. I took my 6 year old with me and she enjoyed trying on the different uniforms.
  • This Museum affected me so emotionally that I thought my heart was going to explode in my chest. I never knew so many women and different races of American women played such a vital part in our country's history in battle. I also understand that these women had to fight to get into the military and to show that they could contribute to our countries safety and Future. But I also understand that these women had to fight first their own countries chauvinistic, racist men in order to take their place in the history and battle of this country. I was very proud that our country historians had not forgotten the women of all Races in our country who contributed to our country's success. God bless America and the woman that made it.
  • 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.
  • Very humbling to see the dog tag tree of the fallen and walking through to see our women playing a major part in serving our country. Thank you to all who have served and serving now
