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.

A definite for the history enthusiast! This is a branch of Smithsonian, so it is truly a superior museum! Many exhibits were breathtaking! Some were like virtual reality submerging you into the battle. Come and Experiance the Infantry, the Soldiers who fight for America's freedom!

What an awesome place to visit, military or civilian. The displays are unique and the way it's set up, you can view different era's of military history. Would definitely recommend to anybody to tour at least once.

Great history and learning experience. They had a Vietnam jungle experience that let you feel like you were there back in the war.

If you are patriotic at all you need to visit the Infantry Museum. It gives one a good idea as to what the solders do for us and what they go through. Also, the Vietnam Wall is there, very moving.

Went here with my wife and 7 year old son. We all loved the museum and appreciated the work that went in to creating a really first class experience. There is also an IMAX movie theater there (they show free movies in the summer...we saw Princess Bride...how cool is that!!) And the restaurant upstairs was pretty good, too. We highly... More

This museum is a wonderful event for people of all ages. It has displays of all the major battles fought in the US as well as artifacts, weaponry, and clothing worn during each battle. It is quite fascinating.

Loved the history of the Infantry!!! The exhibits (both inside and on the grounds) are terrific. There is no fee for entry but they ask for a minimum $5 donation per person. Well worth it!

I cannot say enough how much this museum just rocks. The exhibits are spectacular and well worth the visit. There is no admission fee but they suggest a donation of $5. Trust me, this is worth it. Do walk through the Vietnam jungle for a taste of what this must have been like.

Very high tech museum paying homage to the U.S. Military, specifically the Infantry, and to the men and women who have served our country. I can't even begin to describe how awesome the museum is.

Ok, so I can only base my experience off of a formal dining event I had for my husband's graduation of Officer Candidate School. What I did see and experience was more than enough for me to want to explore again. Although I didn't get a chance to fully explore this venue, my husband showed my many pictures of things... More
