The displays carry the visitor through the story of the beginnings of airborne operations and activities from World War II right up to our present conflicts in the Middle East. A wonderful... More

As history buffs, we knew that we would need the whole day to do this museum and the one across the parking lot at the Veterans Park, so we had a delicious 10 AM lunch at New Deli nearby. We needed every minute of the remaining time until 5 PM for these great sites. At the Airborne Museum entrance was... More

Felt proud of the US Army Airbourne troops thruout time! Exhibits were accurate and interesting! The Vietnam era exhibits had me choked up--loved the combination of newspaper clippings, actual guns, vehicles and artifacts of the time on display!

It was so amazing to visit this establishment and get to learn more about our military ' s history. The displays are set out in chronological order but I felt like there was lay to much stuff to read and I wish it was more interactive.

We encountered this museum by chance, but I was extremely glad that we did. This may not be interesting to people who are not directly affiliated with the Military, but I loved the history. Military uniforms and weapons from WWII to the present day. The exhibits were superbly done, and created a genuine atmosphere of "being there" in the environment... More

Too bad that I can only give it five stars!!! It deserves more. I love the 82nd Abn museum, but I was pretty embarrassed to take my son to the museum. Very very sad. The Airborne/Spec Ops museum is amazing! I hope that I can get my son into this museum. Very well done. You will NOT be disappointed! NO... More
