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.

This military Museum is exceptional. They cover the history of the Infantry fighting man from the beginning. The displays are excellent and the building is first class. The location is great for all people visiting Columbus. This is a Must stop location in Georgia.

Be sure to have several hours available to get through the entire museum. There are several exhibits that have a sort of "immersive" experience, as you walk through as videos & sounds play all around you.

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
