The doors opened on 16 August 2000, the 60th anniversary of the original Test Platoon’s first parachute jump. The museum offers free admission, a main exhibit gallery, temporary gallery, four-story tall theater, a gift shop, and a motion simulator ride that features two experiences. Admission is free, and we do accept donations in the gift shop and in donation boxes in the lobby. The main gallery is designed as a self-guided tour, in chronological order, through the history of airborne and special operations soldiers from 1940 to the present. The temporary gallery changes periodically and displays a myriad of exhibits pertaining to the United States Army airborne and special operations units through their history and conflicts from World War II to the present.

Our 5 year old loves anything military, so we decided to stop by, perfect to gain knowledge and see some really awesome relics from past and present wars. We also rode the simulator (fun but not great), and bought some things in the gift shop.

admission is always free, but the kind gesture is offering a donation to help keep it operating. The Virtual Movie is expensive tho...not worth it. Kinda lame!
Is it pet friendly. We are traveling with our dog. Very friendly

I don't so - only service dogs
I would like to take my grandparents to the museum, but my grandfather has difficulty standing for long periods of time. Are there plenty of places to take a break? Benches, chairs, etc., throughout the museum?
