“Very cool”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

We had a few hours to wait for my brother after AIT graudation and this was the perfect way to spend the time. The museum was well done and all the exhibits outside were awesome to see.

“must visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

Outstanding museum if you like military history. The museum is very well laid out and all associated are very knowledgeable. They recently sunk big $$ into some preservation and it's well received.

“Lots to see - rich with militaria”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

This museum shows the visitor a detailed view of the history of Army transportation, and inspires gratitude for the price paid by so many for our freedom. Give yourself at least 90 minutes to get a decent view of all that is offered.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

We heard about this place while at our annual stay in Williamsburg. It was great! You actually on base a Fort Eustis; you have to go through base security which is extremely strict, but the soldiers were pleasant. There are very few visitors to this museum on a daily basis. The exhibits are spot on. The out door displays (covered) are fantastic. Trains, boats, planes. Make this a stop!

“First-rate museum with high quality displays”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

I went to this museum while I was aboard Ft Eustis for business. I only had about an hour to spare before they closed so I had to rush. I did not get the chance to view the large number of trains, aircraft, etc. that were on display outside. But the inside has a large selection of top-quality uniforms, vehicles, aircraft, dioramas, etc. If you want to read all of the placards and spend time at all of the displays, it will take at least two-three hours. There is no fee for admittance and there is a small gift shop inside. I would recommend checking the museum's website to confirm the operating hours. The only drawback is that it is physically inside the confines of Fort Eustis and the requisite security precautions apply to enter the installation.
