Very interesting.

Very nice! My fiancé, who is a paratrooper, and I visited this museum and we learned a lot. The explanations were clear and helped understand things I had never heard off.

This small military museum probably has more fascinating history crammed into less space than any other museum I've seen. It includes material on the 82nd's original activation as an infantry division for World War I and its role in the battles of St. Mihiel and the Meuse-Argonne. Did you know Sgt York (made famous by the movie with Gary Cooper)... More

As a former 82nd Paratrooper I must admit being biased but the museum is truly one of the very best in the military system today. The displays were top notch and the artifacts were truly exceptional. The outside displays could use some work but the inside portion more than made up for it.

Yes, moving displays and beautifully arranged artifacts from WWI to present time! Amazing to see genuine artifacts from soldiers to present! I had never seen boxes of K rations before nor actual howitzers before!

I've just read the Feb. 2015 review contributed by raj0302 and it so very complete that I can't add any but personal comments. The museum is small, a bit dingy, certainly not as 'spit and polish' as the Airborne & Special Ops Museum in Fayetteville's downtown. Coming from a family with little military service I'm not often stirred by military... More

Expectations. As a retired Marine Corps Infantry Officer and history buff, I have had the privilege of visiting many museums of this type in the United States and abroad. I enjoy visiting military museums of any size/type but especially appreciate museums of this quality. This is a small museum but it is well worth the stop. I can attest that... More

Looking back and learning about our most curious soldiers just sends chills down my spine even now! As a Army Wife of one of these fine soldiers may make me bias but everyone should go see how amazing they are!! A must place to go to anytime of the year!

If you're anywhere near Fort Bragg, this museum is worth a visit. There are a series of outdoor exhibits consisting of aircraft and weaponry (think tanks and howitzers), and a small building with exhibits and a gift shop. Though the building's footprint is small, they've done a commendable job filling it with a good collection that tells the story of... More
