Fort Leonard Wood is the home of the US Army Chemical School. This museum is one of the bests. Walk through history; learn something about the Army. Co-located with the Engineer and MP museums.

This is one of three museums together at Ft. Leonard Wood Military Base. Be sure to see all of them when your there. There is alot of neat items and information about what the chem 'guys' do. Very informative for all.

This museum was amazing. Learned so much about the Army Chemical Corps. Was worth the trip. The only complaint was that the museum was open until 4 pm but the gift shop closed at 12 noon. We were not notified of this when we entered the museum and when we finished the tour the gift shop was closed.

Who would have known that in 1973 when I became an MP at Ft. Gordon, GA that I would someday become a Chemicals Specialist. There is a lot to see in the Chemical Corps museum. It became a Corps in 1918. You will see the evolution of the chemical mask. You will see the detection equipment and changes over the... More

What a great museum - not only the Chemical but the MP and Engineer too (all located in the same building/different wings.) You can view all wings and their gift shops in one trip. Easy access off I-44 exit 161. Straight shot down the street right onto Fort Leonard Wood - you will need to get a Visitors' Pass. Probably... More

The three museums are located within the same building and can easily be seen all together. We spent roughly 1 1/2 to 2 hours touring all three after graduation. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the displays and the details. It wasn't what I had expected at all. The information is very informative and enlightening. We spent the... More

We toured this with our son, who is an MP. This is very interesting. We enjoyed seeing all the history of the Chemical Museum and learning about it. Our great nephew is an engineer in the Army.

It clearly shows what horrible tools man has created to inflict devastating harm to others. It shows the very reason why it's use should be banned.

My least favorite of the museums on the fort. That's not to say it was poorly done, just not my cup of tea. I thought the others were better is all.

I really enjoyed the Chemical Corps portion of the Museum as well. I FINALLY made the time to go through it with my kids and we all enjoyed it!
