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.

We visited the museum while our son was at Fort Benning. I'm so glad we was stationed here or we would have missed this treasure. Well Done!

Awesome museum. The first walk through at the beginning of the tour takes you through all wars from the Revolutionary War to the present. It was a very emotional experience for me as it brought me to tears. A must see for people to understand...More

If you are in Columbus, GA you have to stop at this museum. Fantastic way to show history to your children. The most inspiring exhibit is the photos of all the Medal of Honor winners. A must visit! 🇺🇸🇺🇸

This was an amazing museum, you could easily spend several hours here. I also enjoyed the film Aircraft Carriers. They have a great gift shop and the grounds are beautiful.

Great place to learn about our history. Easy to get to and worth the drive to Fort Benning. One of its kind. Free but asks for donations.

As we left the parking lot, we noted the drag marks in the pavement for vehicles that crossed the steep center median to turn left. Might be a better option to turn right if your RV has a long overhang and search for a... More
