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 wonderful tour through History

I'm so proud to have this museum in my home town. Experience history from the revolutionary war all the way to the present. This is one of the best museums in America.

The place has a great deal of history. It covers all phases of the U.S. Military. During our visit we got to hear a veteran talking about his time in Korea during the war. Learned a great deal about the world wars and was very impressed with the last 100 yards exhibit.

I was very impressed with the wonderful tour, the work that was done to show folks something about the military was quite remarkable. I intend to return when I bring my Navy reunion group to Columbus next year. Thank you for the experience.

The people at the Museum went all out to see that our Ceremony was a success. We had a 7 man 3 volley 21 Gun Salute team above the Wall and a Bugler on the other side above the wall.

A must see when in Columbus. Very interesting and full of history and artifacts. Take it in before a graduation ceremony, when it is not as busy.
