The doors opened on 16 August 2000, the 60th anniversary of the original Test Platoon’s first parachute jump. The museum offers free admission, a main exhibit gallery, temporary gallery, four-story tall theater, a gift shop, and a motion simulator ride that features two experiences. Admission is free, and we do accept donations in the gift shop and in donation boxes in the lobby.

The main gallery is designed as a self-guided tour, in chronological order, through the history of airborne and special operations soldiers from 1940 to the present. The temporary gallery changes periodically and displays a myriad of exhibits pertaining to the United States Army airborne and special operations units through their history and conflicts from World War II to the present.

With a family past and present who have served our Country we made a trip to this very special museum honoring our military and these specialists. The exhibits, displays and stories told via video are very well done. If in reasonable proximity this is worth the trip.

If you are a veteran, military enthusiast, historian, or just want to see what is so special about our America’s airborne and special operations soldiers, this is the museum to visit. Well worth a stop. It is beautifully maintained with great exhibits that chronicles the development of the Airborne and Special Operations from just before America’s entry into World War... More

If you are a military lover, historian, or just want to see what is so special about our men and women paratroopers and Special Operations soldiers, this museum is a great place to spend an hour or whole day. Really can't go through the Fayetteville area - home of Fort Bragg, the 82d Airborne, the Green Berets, and Delta Force... More

I have zero interest in the military and its operations, but I found this museum surprisingly interesting. It helped me understand the military and their families with whom I associate almost every day, living in Fayetteville.

Took the family and was very happy we went. A great museum with a great wealth of history and done so that it is not boring for kids or non military people. Lots of displays. Would love to go back.
