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.

If you are in Columbus, GA you have to stop at this museum. Fantastic way to show history to your children. The most inspiring exhibit is the photos of all the Medal of Honor winners. A must visit! 🇺🇸🇺🇸

This was an amazing museum, you could easily spend several hours here. I also enjoyed the film Aircraft Carriers. They have a great gift shop and the grounds are beautiful.

Great place to learn about our history. Easy to get to and worth the drive to Fort Benning. One of its kind. Free but asks for donations.

We went here while at Fort Benning for family weekend. The collection of military items in this museum is impressive. There is a lot of reading required and probably not much interest for younger kids. If you are in you dont want to miss this!

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
