Overview
More
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.

I love museums, especially military museums. This one is among the best, with focus on WWII era. A little light post-WWII.

I'm not at all into military types of things but I'm an architect so I went in just to see the building. I was impressed with the building but also the displays. I felt it was a very sensitive place. The building is beautifully done...More

This place was very impressive. It's free and bigger than you would expect. Displays are very well done from floor to ceiling. Lots of different things represented here. You can't miss Iron Mike out front. They also sometimes have visiting displays from local school kids...More

A must-see when in the Fayetteville area!!! Go during Veteran's Day for a special display of flags. Very humbling! Be sure to check out all of the outside displays as well.

My military-obsessed 9 year old and I stopped here with some time to kill while on vacation. I was pleasantly surprised by how much was there. We learned a lot and my son was in heaven. We were, however, disappointed by the "virtual reality" movies....More

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!
