The National Infantry Museum emphasizes the values that define the Infantryman, as well as the nation he protects: Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage. It preserves and displays one of the greatest collections of military artifacts in the world, but it is a museum of people, not things. As a visitor, you will meet the Infantryman face to face and join him on his journey. You will come to understand why an Infantryman does what he does, why he puts himself in harm’s way in defense of an idea and you will leave transformed, just as the Infantry transforms the man into the Soldier. The 190,000-square-foot museum opened in June 2009 on a 200-acre tract of hardwoods and pines just outside the gates of the Fort Benning Maneuver Center of Excellence.

The Last Hundred Yards shows 8 scenes of pivotal battles in which infantry soldiers fought valiantly. Soil from those battlefields has been placed on the parade ground behind the museum. Downstairs are exhibits of all American war periods displayed beautifully.

We have visited military museums all across the country and this is at the top of list. We moved to near by Auburn and have been at least 10 times in 3 years. It takes over 3 hours if you stop and read the displays, and then you still want to go back and look at something again. What we... More

The museum is farely new, and very well kept. It accepts donations as the price of admission. The grounds around provide visitors to see older military vehicles. The interior is very well layed out, and I love how one can walk through the "experience" of being in certain time frames of the American Infantryman. One of my favorites was the... More

I never served in the military, but this facility captures the heart of the heroic spirit of our nation in ways that are both interesting and solemn, but also integral to our freedoms. Nicely done. Makes me very proud of our Army folk.

The museum is a fantastic art work showing the history of our fight for freedom. The interactive stations were very informative.

Never thought how big this place was but it was amazing! The only bad thing was the staff was kinda rude because it was a Sunday and they were ready to go home (and they all told us this) but I still enjoyed the history with my friends. Never did see the theater but I heard it's a waste of... More
