Attraction details
Type: History Museums, Military Museums, Museums
Owner description: 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.

Wasn't sure what to expect from an infantry museum. But was overwhelmed and impressed! The history of infantry is history of our country. Multiple exhibits there very well done and contain lots of actual artifacts from important events in world history! I couldn't recommend it more highly.

This museum is at least a two day visit. It does a fantastic job of telling the story of the American infantryman. This is a must for any veteran and family. The place is huge and is not finished yet. The displays are top notch and interactive. They have Imax. It was just a great museum, Smithsonian quality all the... More

A definite must see!! Whether you're there for a graduation or not. It taught me what my son will be doing at his permanent post & other options he's considering in his Army career.

It's probably more interesting to a soldier but families were there and enjoying the museum. They have the different wars separated WWI, WWII, Korea, Viet-Nam, Gulf War. You would be hard pressed to see everything in one day. I was here last year and had to go back and see what all I missed. The building is awesome and the... More

As I wheeled my father around, he shared stories we'd never heard. He knew the maps of Korea and Vietnam like the back of his hand. So glad he made the trip from Texas. He loved and appreciated the place.

I visited the Infantry Museum when I went to my sons graduation from basic training. It is so amazing, family friendly, clean, great staff, plenty of parking, and a gift shop with great prices. The attractions inside have visual and sound effects as well as printed information in front of each. Outside is the Vietnam wall..a must see!

We visited the infinity museum when we went to Georgia for our sons basic training graduation. This place is amazing. I wish I would have taken a video of it. The attraction tells about every our soldiers in the past time has been through. It shows all the different weapons that were ever used. I found all the information very... More
