The tour bus guide was very informative. The areas we were able to walk around were very nice including the church. After the tour visted the museum. That was well worth seeing. I would go again.

The history of America is intertwined with battles that have won or maintained our freedom. The displays take you through various time periods with uniforms,weapons, explanations, etc. West Point played a strategic role and its graduates key players in most conflicts. Worth the time to...More

I traveled to The Academy from NYC on a retirement trip. The buses are not all that convenient so you have to adjust your schedule accordingly with Short Line (From Port Authority Bus Terminal) but it is all very affordable. The "perch" of the site...More

A really interesting and historic museum. Three floors of artifacts truly worth seeing. There is no charge to visit the museum just a donation box if you like.

A huge museum that takes you through the history of war and the American army. Very interesting displays, but many do seem like they haven’t been updated in many years. Lots of people were visiting but did not feel crowded.

We toured this free museum on Tuesday January 10, 2017. The collection of American military items is unreal. The museum is organized in an easy to follow order. The museum is a must see for any military veteran.

RD, Are you sure you were in the West Point Museum? The Museum is in the yellow brick building behind the Visitor Center. We do not have a Cadet barracks display. It sounds as if you toured the displays in the Visitor Center. The Museum has six galleries, and has quiet a bit more in its exhibits that what you described.
