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.

We stayed over 3 hours in this museum, and could have spent more time there if we'd had the time. There is so very much to see! The exhibits are powerful and informative and really good. Every war and conflict that the U.S. has been involved in since the American Revolution is covered in detail. The first hall you walk... More

I may be a bit biased, but this was one of the most incredible places I've ever toured. I was an Army Infantryman and we were there this past weekend for my soon to be Infantryman Son's family day. The history contained in this building was awesome. The pride of being a part of the Brotherhood made it even better.... More

We went to the National Infantry Museum for two hours one afternoon, but could have spent several more. This was a very detailed, informative museum that had great exhibits that spanned the interests of our group from 2 years old to 60. The entrance fee is free, but a donation is appreciated and the gift shop was varied and extensive.

Walk the last 100 yds! As you enter, your mouth drops as you see the realistic quality of this display that surrounds you from the Revolutionary War up to the present. You WILL appreciate the infantry man and their sacrifices through every American conflict. As a Veteran who did not see combat, I was moved like never before, and realized... More

We recently held the 50th reunion of our deployment to Vietnam and spent the day at the NIM. Our group of 30 veterans and their families found the museum to be a highlight of our three day reunion. The staff were easy to work with and were very responsive during our planning process. During the day of our visit, the... More

Touring the Museum was life changing and very eye opening. A worth see for everyone. Every war/conflict was displayed to depict what happened during that particular time. To visit and honor those who fought and died for our Country is a privilege we should all take advantage of.

This is a must see museum for learning history of wars. Also, it is a big place, and you want to have plenty of time to view it all and even watch an IMAX movie.

Amazing the level of detail here! Needs more armor though now that they combined the maneuver centers.
