Unbelievable amounts of historical material, actual artifacts and equipment from battles back to US infancy. This is a truly unique facility with resources that appeal to both the history buff and researcher. The facility houses everything from US Militia records of the Civil War (originals, not somebody's studies) to the flag that draped President Lincoln's casket to choppers flown in... More

An experience that is at once invigorating, inspiring , educational, and fun. A wonderful opportunity to brush up on our history while learning many new things. Also an excellent opportunity for serious researchers. For the youngsters there is the Army Heritage Trail where they can see, and climb on, many relics and visit settings from past conflicts. A great place... More

What a wonderful display of Army history. Plus, the archives were phenomenal! The staff was incredibly helpful as well. Great place to visit for a few hours, or stay longer and do some in-depth research! Amazing Civil War resources.

Do stop here, learn and be inspired. This is a very interactive museum; you will not just be reading as you walk, but you will be experiencing as you walk through the exhibits. It can hardly be done in one day, so much rich history to be grateful to see and learn about and from, too. The curators took great... More

This relatively new military history complex includes the incomparable archives (open to the public for research) a new and outstanding museum on the history of the US Army, and an outdoor museum featuring innovative vignettes reflecting different eras of military history in our country. If the story of our army interests you, this is a place that warrants a trip... More

One of a kind center showcasing the US Army with lots of activities for kids. The mile-long Army trail is an interactive one. The trench system exhibit is interesting with lots of facts posted in actual trenches. The Korean war tanks, Sherman tanks, and helicopters are scattered around the trail. The indoor museum has many interactive exhibits with a shooting... More
