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 youth group on a mission trip in Fayetteville took a break from working on houses damaged/destroyed by Hurricane Matthew and visited this museum. We used a scavenger hunt (see museum resources) and found fascinating information throughout the facility.

I took an exchange student from Germany because he was interested in the USA Army's history. It was exciting to see how the weapons progress and how the PJs got started. ( parachute jumpers) Germany started this tactic by jumping out of hot air balloons....More

Went here with our son who is stationed in Ft. Bragg. A very nice museum if you are interested in military history, especially Airborne and Special Operations. It's free, but of course, leave whatever generous donation you can afford.

Is a great place for the kids to go and have a good time. It shows a lot about the military and the history of it. It shows all the major war and what the airborn and special forces did to change the outcome.

This is must see for those like myself that were stationed at FT. Bragg or just those that enjoy freedom, history, or where tax dollars go. Wonderful for all ages.

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!
