Description: The National Infantry Museum emphasizes the values that define the...
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.

What an inspiring experience this museum was. You will have a renewed appreciation for the Infantry after you visit this site. Give yourself time, though, as there is a great deal to see.

This museum is even for those not into museums. Includes footage taken during actual battles and leaves you feeling patriotic through and through. The field behind the museum has soil brought from different battles! We visited 2 years in a row.

An AWESOME experience for current, former, and non-military alike. Everything from the walk through the history of the infantry to the memorials to the movie theater were all spectacular....and all for only a $5 donation.

Spent the afternoon at the museum with my son after his Turning Blue ceremony. It was great to walk through history and have relevant discussions around what he learned. The artifacts here are very nice and the descriptions provided are very detailed. Very clean environment.

Great Historical items and information. It will take a good part of the day to go through. Two days to really see everything.

Have been here many times for work, but always enjoy getting to see the history kept within this place. The last 100 yards is an amazing walk through history. If you visit on a Friday, be sure to check out a basic training graduation on the parade field. They start at 9 or 10am depending on the time of year.... More
