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 NIM is a very nice new facility with excellent displays from all the wars our brave men have fought in. It is full of history and appropriate for all ages.

Great military history museum, also has Imax inside that shows 4-5 different movies, decent food. They only ask for donations to enter. I would find out if there is a Army basic training company graduation going on there before planning a trip because it's very busy at those time.

We were able to enjoy this with our son during family day. It was a pleasant and informative museum. The staff was friendly and helpful. I highly recommend it during one of your visits. The cafe is a little over priced for the quality of food and I felt bad that they let us eat ahead of the soldiers that... More

The Civil War/1812 site was closed for reconstruction which was a disappointment because that was what we most wanted to see. However, the rest of the the exhibits were well done. We had our kids 7-19 with us, and it was enjoyable for the whole gang.

Very reflective experience visiting this museum, one I think everyone should visit. The last 100 yards of every war display you walk through as you first enter is very impressive an unlike anything I've seen. You could spend hours viewing all the artifacts. It really makes you appreciate our service men and women throughout the years. The outside displays were... More

This is a wonderful military museum with an imax theater and some interactive exhibits. You can spend as little or as much time as you want. There is no fee to get in- donations only. If you've had a friend or family member serve our country its a must see!
