* 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.

This is the second best military museum that I have visited, the best being in Boalsburg PA. This is definitely worth a visit for anyone visiting Fayetteville or interested in the history of the Airborne.

I am biased due to being a career paratrooper, but I have been to many CONUS museums and this not only has the traditional displays, but has things like the Pitch and Yaw and some other interactive displays. A very distinctive museum.

This museum is very well done with interactive and static displays. Among the best military-focused museums I have visited. Kids will enjoy it as much as adults.
