Since its birth during the Revolutionary War in 1775, the U.S. Army Quartermaster Corps has fed, clothed and equipped the U.S. Army. The Museum's 11 exhibit galleries tell the stories of how the Quartermasters have provided logistical support from Valley Forge and Little Big Horn to Iraq and Afghanistan. Some of the Museum's significant artifacts include the nation's first 50 star flag, General George Patton's World War II jeep, General Grant's Civil War saddle and General Eisenhower's World War II field quarters. Others include uniforms, flags, weapons, horse equipment; food preparation, mortuary affairs, water, petroleum and air delivery equipment. The Museum's 26,000 artifacts make it the fourth largest Army museum in the country.

Recent visit to the QM Museum during a really hot day. The museum traces the history of the US Army Quartermaster Corps from the Revolution to the current conflicts. Has interactive exhibits for kids. Takes about 2 hours to take in the whole museum. Museum is free

I staying at Fort Lee for a very short time but I always try to hit the museums on base. I did not expect much from the Quartermaster's Museum but boy was I wrong. Lots of great ORIGINAL items. See the evolution of the military canteen, dog tags and army rations. General Patton's jeep. Ike's van. The very first 50... More

If it's true that an army travels on its stomach, this will give you a new appreciation for the miraculous feeding of the multitudes the quartermaster corps regularly provides! The museum is home to a amphibious landing craft used on Utah Beach during the D-Day invasion. It has special meaning for me since my dad's WWII army division landed there.

Enjoyed several visits here while on Active Duty and TDY as a Civilian. Military History Buffs will enjoy. Logisticians will appreciate these exhibits.

This is a standard place to visit when out of town family or friends come to visit. It can be seen in a few hours if you read everything and learn a great deal.

The Quartermaster Museum is rather small. For as long as the Quartermaster Corps has been around and for as large of a mission that it has in providing logistics for the Army, it does not reflect all of the great accomplishments of its history. It is next to the Women's Museum and it is just as small. It is a... More

I took the kids here just to kill time while my husband was in training. We spent almost 3 hours here and at the women's museum. This museum was so much fun and had a lot of cool things and facts about our wars. The kids had a blast and def worth checking out.
