Owner description: Since its birth during the Revolutionary War in 1775, the U.S. Army Quartermaster Corps has fed, clothed and equipped the U.S. Army. The Museum's 11 exhibit galleries tell the stories of how the Quartermasters have provided logistical support from Valley Forge and Little Big Horn to Iraq and Afghanistan. Some of the Museum's significant artifacts include the nation's first 50 star flag, General George Patton's World War II jeep, General Grant's Civil War saddle and General Eisenhower's World War II field quarters. Others include uniforms, flags, weapons, horse equipment; food preparation, mortuary affairs, water, petroleum and air delivery equipment. The Museum's 26,000 artifacts make it the fourth largest Army museum in the country.

“Great museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

I love this museum, you must check it out if you are a quartermaster or not. It is the nations fourth largest army museum. The museum was featured on the Travel Channel's "Mysteries at the Museum." It has the legend of the Red Ghost and the Camel Bell. Their website is: www.qmmuseum.lee.army.mil. The museum is closed on Mondays.

“A must see for military interest, past to present”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Any one interested in history, Virginia or otherwise, should stop by this museum. A war cannot be fought or won without supplies....and the Quartermasters have been and are the ones who keep it rolling, or dropping from the sky, to the men who must have it. From the Civil War to todays battles, this museum covers it all. The saddest job they perform(ed) is Graves Registration, but they handle this and every other necessary with honor. Several great exhibits, easy access through the gates of Fort Lee, something for all...and right next door is the Women's Museum.
