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.

Lots and lots of military history and exhibits here. All kinds of stuff from 300 years ago to present. Nice gift shop too. Well worth 3-4 hours or more.

This was a hidden gem. The history of the infantry was amazing. I loved the history of the Korean conflict and this hit the mark.

This place is amazing. It is better than most museums you pay to see. Lots of information and artifacts. We were there 2 hours and barely scratched the surface. Preschool aged children would probably not enjoy as much but my elementary and middle schoolers enjoyed.

We were at Ft. Benning for the graduation of our nephew from basic training. This museum is FREE to tour, yet they do take donations for the museum and it is well worth the donation to keep this piece of American History available to everyone....More

Everytime I go I learn something new. I also like the hands on exhibits. They also have a cool replica of the old Ft. Benning where you can walk thru the barracks and General Patton's quarters.

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.
