Free with a recommended $5 donation. This museum is in downtown Fayetteville and NOT on Fort Bragg (I believe others are confusing it with the much smaller 82nd Airborne Division Museum on Ft Bragg). Very well done museum, with realistic displays and presentations. In the...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!
