Was a real eye opener when it came to understanding just what terrible events these brave soldiers endured for many years to keep our country safe. HOORAH!

I loved all the information it gave, and especially loved the items captured during war times and from such known leaders. Very educational and interesting. Really makes you feel the history. Small children probably not so entertained.

OK, so I went here with my family to see this place. In a place with the US's biggest military base, I expected more. The tour was detailed, but very short. To there credit though, they had one of those cool collective penny machines, a gift shop, and a simulation ride.

We only stopped at this museum because it was raining. But, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Wonderful tribute to our troops from WWI to the present. Most notable was the wonderful active duty paratrooper who volunteered his time to walk around and talk to patrons about his service and answer any questions they might have. Worth the 2-3 hours for... More

* Must see if in the Greater Fayetteville Area* Admission is Free/Donations accepted. Upon returning to my old home,Fort Bragg, I was amazed how much downtown Fayetteville has changed. All for the good. The museum was a walk through history with some of the "Greatest&Best" fighting units in the history of the Army. I had the opportunity to serve this... More

This is a spectacularly done museum with both indoor and outdoor exhibits and all for free! I was particularly enthralled by the bronze hand castings. What an amazing way to remember local military veterans! Informative, commemorative and stunningly beautiful.

Lots of historical, interesting things to see. Give yourself 30 minutes to two hours, depending on how much you read.

This museum is a wonderful asset to downtown Fayetteville. We visited with our 82nd Airborne son who is stationed at Ft Bragg, and we were all impressed. Well maintained facility. Self guided tour, so you can go as quickly or slowly as you choose. Free parking, free entrance. May want to avoid school groups, because they can get noisy and... More

I was a paratrooper at Ft Bragg so I was obviously interested in seeing this place and was not disappointed in the least. I suggest anyone that has never served to visit to appreciate what we in the Airborne have experienced. For vets it will bring back memories. Parking is priced right, the entry is priced right too! Arranged nice,... More

Very interesting. I can't believe this museum is free! Exhibits takes guest through the history of paratroopers from being to current day.
