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.

Every American citizen should visit this museum to learn about the sacrifices of our brave men and women in the armed services who have kept, and continue to keep, our country free. There are great historical exhibits from the beginning of our country until the recent wars on terrorism.

The displays are first class. This is located in close proximity to Fort Benning. This is also a first class venue to host dinners related to the military and to military history. The parking is generous and free. Everything here is first rate.

The museum is a place you will have to visit at least 3 times to absorb it all. It is segregated by each major war we have been involved with. The medal of honor room is very humbling. The volunteers are very helpful and knowledgeable. If you are in town dont miss this.

A very emotional, and satisfying experience! First trip to museum, was truly impressed. The visuals, especially the Vietnam exhibit, brought back vivid memories. I have to thank those whose dedication and commitment made this honored building a reality. Every former soldier should visit this site, and pay homage to those who sacrificed their lives!

From the wealth of information clearly presented in exhibits and video, to the beautifully preserved WWII barracks, to the stunning view of a graduating class of Rangers at attention as the colors come across the field with the color guard...what an uplifting place to be, what a great experience for families, what a deep way to renew your sense of...

We visited the museum during Infantry graduation week. What a wonderful place. The displays are phenomenal and the layout of the building adds to the learning. The outside memorials just as great. What a great place to hold graduation too. We definitely will come back.

Had the opportunity to visit on graduation weekend. Busy, but not overly so. As a retired sailor who had absolutely NO idea exactly what our fine young infantrymen do to defend our country (other than make the chow lines long on deployment), it was an eye-opener! I learned alot and came away with a new found respect for these soldiers!

This place is amazing. Son took us there after his "turning blue" ceremony at Ft. Benning. Was amazed at the level of artifacts on display. We also were there for his basic training graduation on the parade field behind the museum. High recommend when visiting Columbus.
