The Army West Point Academy on the Hudson is open to visitors certain restrictions apply. The West Point museum located just outside the main campus is worthy of a stop. A fee based bus tour is available from this location with your choice of a one hour or two hour tour on the West Point campus. I opted for the... More

So I walk in and ask the guy at the front desk a question. He was looking at a magazine of girls dressed in bikini's. I had to cough to get his attention. He was of NOOO help. I go to the visitor's center. A lady there is reading advertisements and I have to cough several times to get her... More

We visited this museum with our 8 year old sons. They were amazed by the military history and various artifacts. This is a must see in the Hudson Valley area!

Excellent place to take my 3 kids. The museum was well laid out, with many fantastic artifacts and displays. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed it thoroughly.

While the museum is loaded with artifacts, presentation is very dated. Maybe curators could consider interactive tools and documentary type of clips to help inform viewer. Many of the guests were foreign during my visit and better visual descriptions would be welcomed.

Enjoyed our visit. Great gift shop. The bathrooms could have used a little attention but there were quite a few people there. Picked up some items for some West Point Alums who are friends.

We were in the area on family vacation and decided to stop at West Point. This place is still on my list of top 10 beautiful spots in the north east to visit. The views from Trophy Point, overlooking the Hudson River, are second to none and the stone architecture of many of West Point's buildings is something to be... More

While most of the artifacts and history exhibits here concentrate on showing the history of West Point, it has an outstanding collection of military donated to West Point over the years. The artillery piece that fired the first US shots during WW1 and the safety fuse for the atomic bomb "Fat Man" are among these items. Over the years, an... More

We took our son (age 14) and his cousin (age 9) to West Point to check it out while we were in NY for vacation. We didn't do the campus tour due to time restraints. We probably should have. We did tour the visitor center and the museum. It is 4 floors of military heaven. The boys and my husband... More
