We visit the airborne museum several times a year and always learn something new. From the volunteers that are willing to share their stories with you to the intricate representations throughout the museum. For anyone that enjoys history specifically military history this is a must...a gem in Fayetteville!

Even the younger kids will enjoy this museum because of all the exhibits. They may not understand but it will keep their attention. Walking through you could hear fathers telling their kids about how things were when they were overseas. I even saw an older gentleman tear up looking at one of the displays.

Really impressive, a good place to bring your whole family to learn about military history. One of the best military museums that I've been in, amazing history of the Airborne from conception to present day, we spent about 2 to 3 hours there. A must for everyone, we will definitely come back next time we are in town.

Great museum showing the evolution of the US airborne forces from WWII up to the present-day. Free admission. Wonderful full-sized combat dioramas with period aircraft, vehicles and equipment. There are numbers of displays of German paratrooper equipment and early US para stuff. Nice gift shop with reasonable prices. This is a "must-see" for paratrooper or special Ops fans.

The simulator was a really neat experience in feeling what it is like to ride on several military vehicles including a helicopter and a Humvee.

We were in town with a few days off from the US Open at Pinehurst so decided to visit the museum. Amazing history of the Airborne from conception to present day. We spent about 2 to 3 hours there. A must for everyone.

After seeing signs on 95 for the last couple of years we finally decided to give this a look see. It was educational for young folks and very moving for older ones, especially veterans. If your traveling I95 through NC and have a little time I highly recommend this as a 2 to 3 hour stop. They accept donations but... More
