The doors opened on 16 August 2000, the 60th anniversary of the original Test Platoon’s first parachute jump. The museum offers free admission, a main exhibit gallery, temporary gallery, four-story tall theater, a gift shop, and a motion simulator ride that features two experiences. Admission is free, and we do accept donations in the gift shop and in donation boxes in the lobby. The main gallery is designed as a self-guided tour, in chronological order, through the history of airborne and special operations soldiers from 1940 to the present. The temporary gallery changes periodically and displays a myriad of exhibits pertaining to the United States Army airborne and special operations units through their history and conflicts from World War II to the present.

I took my daughter while she was visiting. There was no cost, just a donation. This museum is so large and so informative. I didn't realize all the different special operations fields there were. What an honor to be living amongst these dedicated men and women. You can even be involved in some of their missions. Amazing!!

Releasing repressed memories is probably therapeutic, but the way the work has changed over the last 50 years is just plain interesting.

I enjoy experiencing the military museums in a timeline-like sequence! This makes the experience so much more understandable to me. The exhibits are realistic, informative, and a visitor can take in as much or as little as desired!

From WWII to the Vietnam War and current war in Middle East, this museum displays the many accomplishments of our airborne hero's. You can spend many hours touring this museum or just cover the highlights which include physical displays of equipment and even the gliders used in some operations. Well worth your time and admission is free.

An exceptional tribute to Airborne and Special Operations Forces throughout the history of our great Nation. No trip to Fayetteville is complete without dropping by the ASOM. Highly recommend.

If you love your country this is a must see. The exhibits are great and not only tell the story of our military both past and present but also imply the sacrifice and fighting spirit of our military. Even if you visit with high expectations, you will not be disappointed.
