Overview
More
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.

This was very interesting museum and it was free. They had real vehicles used, statues dressed in uniforms of the special opps, and the different guns used, planes hanging from the ceiling and different scenes depicting situations during war.

The museum has a lot of reading and it has movies to watch. It's great for information about the Army Special Forces.

The men of the airborne division are true heroes. This museum is so impersonal that they might as well have discussed robots. Every exhibit was the same, even if the battle was different. The heroes went in, they were brave, they contributed to the victory....More

This place is so well done. We’ve been to the Smithsonian and Normandy and this place has it all. The simulator ride is bumpy (not for toddlers - too intense) and gives a great feel of being a passenger in an amphibious vehicle and a...More

admission is always free, but the kind gesture is offering a donation to help keep it operating. The Virtual Movie is expensive tho...not worth it. Kinda lame!
