Overview

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.

A joy for anyone who knows a bit about the U.S. infantry. An eye-opening experience for those who have yet to understand the sacrifice and sense of duty that our soldiers have displayed since before 1776.

It was so well worth it to see the true to life displays of the different wars implicated by not only pictures on a wall or display of weaponry used. There is no charge just a donation.
