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.

Stopped by while in town so my husband could tour the museum as he is an ex-Army Ranger who was in Special Ops. He was very impressed at the memorabilia and exhibits here. Wonderful museum and admission is free. Highly recommend.

We've been to this museum at least three times (not to include a military ball that we attended). Admission is free, but we always give a donation. We feel that it is well worth it. The veterans that greet you are very friendly and there is a ton to see. Our favorite has to be the Battle of Mogadishu (Black... More

This is an amazing museum. Not only does it contain a large and comprehensive display of information and displays about airborne forces' involvement in wars and conflicts around the world, the atmosphere within the museum causes one to better realize the true cost of freedom. I would encourage everyone living in or visiting the Fayetteville area to visit this museum.
