Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

New museum with very cool army exhibits. Kept the whole family engaged. I like the way they organized their exhibits by era. Some of the exhibits were so real the kids were a little afraid - very cool! The outside is also beautifully maintained. Highly recommend!!

This is a very impressive museum both in its content and in the layout of the museum. Will definitely visit again in the near future as I do not think I could have absorbed it all in one visit.

Sound, lighting, visuals, volunteers - all make this an outstanding place to learn about the Infantry and it's service to our country. The exhibits are very well done - and we were only have to visit WWII and Korea - need to go back and do Revolutionary, Civil and WWI. Modern Day as well. Didn't have time for the IMAX - either! Make a day or two of it. I learned a great deal and enjoyed it immensely.

On a whim I took some visiting family members to the National Infantry Museum. I was extremely impressed with the exhibits. It's a very large facility, so be sure to give yourself plenty of time to see everything.

It was really nice visiting this place. The weather while I was out there was nice considering that it was in early October.
