Personal tour by ex-paratrooper Archivist, Ralph Alvarez. Many memorials to the servicemen of the 82nd. Be prepared to find and enter through the Visitors gate where you will undergo a security and background check. It only took about twenty minutes-not a big deal.

Nice small museum documenting the proud history of the 82nd Airborne Division. Staff is helpful and a small gift shop is available. Nice current history as well. Take the time to drop by, Fayetteville owes it's very existence to the 82nd and this monument to them will not disappoint!

Loved this museum. Had so much history about the 82nd Airborne and their place in keeping our country free.

Well put together museum. Be aware that you will be entering Fort Bragg base and will have to provide ID. Was not a problem, we were in and out quickly getting our base pass. The fellows working in the museum were very informative and helpful. Had a great time chatting with them

Went to the memorial because my father-in-law was in the 82nd Airborne Division. Because it is part of Ft. Bragg, all visitors must obtain a security check at the Ft. Bragg visitor center.

If you like the Military, and have a love for US Army Parachute Infantry, then this is a great spot for a history lesson. The 82nd AB memorial has so much to see and learn, from the displays and monuments outside, to some wonderful history and exhibits inside, this is a must for all Americans to see, and hands down...

Before you visit the museums on base, be sure to stop at the visitors center just before the gate. They have to run a check on you before you can get a pass to get onto base. This museum is small but the way it's laid out gives it a much bigger feel and they have fit a lot of... More

This is/was the first unit in the US Army to have members for all 48 states(1917). The museum is small but worth the find. It is a walk through history, from Sgt York,WW I to present day War on Terror. Take your time walk around,look and ask questions, about what you see. Most of the staff are volunteers, who have...

If you're not comfortable traveling around Ft. Bragg might be difficult to find but definitely worth a stop. Kind of small but wonderful pieces of history. Volunteers are full of useful information.

Like other travelers, we too had a hard time finding the museum but it was well worth the search. It's very well done and gives you an great feel for what the 82nd airborne has done throughout history. My husband wants to go back when he has more time. We had our 9 and 7 year olds with us and...
