Very nice displays of artifacts and memorabilia. Items were priced fairly as well as having a good selection, too.

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.

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

This was quite a nice little museum!! A lot of history about the area and of course - the military! Had teens and kids there and all were interested in different aspects. Stop in if you are nearby!

This represents my third visit to the military academies Museum West Point. Each visit has been superior to last the museum is filled with beautiful artifacts and an informative display of our military history from 1776 through the present. It's free so be sure to take all the family to see it.
