The National Infantry Museum emphasizes the values that define the Infantryman, as well as the nation he protects: Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage. It preserves and displays one of the greatest collections of military artifacts in the world, but it is a museum of people, not things. As a visitor, you will meet the Infantryman face to face and join him on his journey. You will come to understand why an Infantryman does what he does, why he puts himself in harm’s way in defense of an idea and you will leave transformed, just as the Infantry transforms the man into the Soldier. The 190,000-square-foot museum opened in June 2009 on a 200-acre tract of hardwoods and pines just outside the gates of the Fort Benning Maneuver Center of Excellence.

This museum was in the same parking lot as our hotel, so it was very convenient. We only had half a day to see it after we went to an Airborne graduation at Ft. Benning. I was amazed at how detailed the museum was. We only saw a fraction of it, so don't spend too much time upstairs. There are... More

This museum is a must see if you are in the Columbus, Ga. The displays and sound affects are life like. The museum encompasses all the wars. It honors our soldiers and what they fought for - our FREEDOM. It's a beautiful museum - I was both honored and humbled to walk through.

My nephews boot camp graduation was held here. It's a really nice place. I got to show my 14 yr old and 7 yr old where their Great Grandfather's fought it WWII. The restaurant in there was amazing.

This museum has carefully thought out exhibits, with various sections dedicated to different conflicts. It is almost eerie to walk through the WW I trench depictions but the one that will get you is the Vietnam exhibit. Probably not a great idea for a Nam veteran as they seek to generate the hot steamy jungle with vines hanging down. In... More

This museum is well worth a visit and you can spend a lot of time going around it as I spent more than a day at it. It is located near Ft Benning, but you do not need to go on the base to visit. It is a very well done museum.

My family went to see a movie on the IMAX but as we walked out the exhibits were so professional we stayed and toured the museum. We have retired military in our family and I have worked at Ft Benning so many of the exhibits were familiar. It is truly a tribute to the Army. Each area is well kept... More
