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.

Second visit, learn more each time. Took both of my boys, 10 & 5, this time. Good learning experience for them even if much of the detail was way over their head. Definitely worth the time investment to visit.

Went there with a friend for his 50th high school reunion. The space where the event was held was large and very clean. The wait staff that served the food were very attentive. Had a great meal there. Really enjoyed the event!

Large museum with a variety of interesting things to view. Kids had fun and at the same time learned a lot about the different wars throughout history. The historical aspect was very good but at the same time sad. Would go back.

I did not serve in WWII or any other war, but I saw every WWII movie ever made, I think. The stories, the weapons, the amazing bravery is dramatically portrayed in a way that makes every American proud and humbled. The exhibits, the sounds, the...More

It's true drama grounded in the History of United States Army! Better and more true to facts than any movies or documentaries. This is a museum that surpasses anything you have seen before in it's accuracy and truth to actual History. It's a must see!!!

There's a lot to see here, even if you're not particularly interested in military history. It's great for American history buffs too. I'm a Civil War buff and found plenty to keep my interest, and even my 8 year old granddaughter found things ti pique...More

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

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