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 were attending a dinner at the museum on the occasion of my husband's 50th reunion from Officers Candidate School. The museum is well organized as it takes you through our country's war history. For me, it was a goose bump experience, as it reminds us of the sacrifices men and women have made to protect our freedom. Plan to... More

Visited for my son's graduation. It was a very memorable experience learning the history of the graduation field and how it came to be the museum was even there. Talk to a host..they will share everything and you will not look at it the same, especially if your child is in the Army and active Infantryman!

We visit the NIM while at Ft. Benning for our nephew's graduation for training. The building and grounds are beautiful in their own right, and the museum displays inside are great! They had a 3D movie about D-Day and the role of the infantry. Very informative!

Free! Donations gladly accepted. And you don't need access to the military base to see it. The entire location was very well done and a great example of a private organization (National Infantry Association I think) and the US Army coming together to display the best of both. I would like to see the entire Armor display brought back as... More

Just go. And don't be cheap. Leave a donation. Beautiful and thought provoking. It will give a small sense of what our armed forces go through for us.
