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 (hubby and I) were in Columbus for an overnight visit and decided to go to this museum. We both love history and museums and we got both here. The exhibits are excellent and very well done. Very realistic. All of the wars the US has ever been in were covered in the museum. Each major war had its own... More

You will be amazed at the items on exhibit- large and small- and the things you can learn about years and eras gone by. Definitely make the time to visit the WW2 village at the back of the complex.... More

While visiting Fort Benning, you won't want to miss the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center, especially if you or a loved one are interested in the history of war. You could easily spend a day touring this museum, but if time and energy are limited, you can pick any particular area of interest and become immersed in that era.... More

The National Infantry Museum was amazing! Bring some tissues, some exhibits will bring you to tears! The Museum operates on donations with a suggested donation of 5 dollars per family, truly amazing! Loved it! It's also a great reminder of all the sacrifices made for this great Nation and every American!
