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.

This museum rivals all of the museums on The Mall in Washington, DC. Free but there is a donation box at the front door suggesting $5 per person which is well worth it! Lots of information on the history of the Army starting at inception...More

Fantastic museum! It is the closest thing to being at a Smithsonian museum you can get without going to DC. It will take you through the birth of this Nation to the current GWOT. It is a living tribute to America’s fighting men and women....More

There is no charge, though they ask for a donation at the door. It's worth it.
