  • US Army museum of great importance to the history and freedom of this nation. Many static displays, well planned, and presented, all about the US ARMY and the US soldier. Highly recommended.  more »

  • This has to be one of the best museums I've been too. It's free but they do ask for a $5 donation. Museums like this in my area would charge at least $15. The scenes and mannequins are very lifelike. My husband and I spent three hours here and could have used more time. If I'm ever in the area again I would go again.
  • I am a veteran and I enjoy going to the infantry museum. They have a lot to see and the movie theater is a plus. The customer service is great and they are very helpful. It is a fairly large museum. They also have graduation ceremonies in the back on the the lawn area which is very nice. There is a hotel next door for visitors to stay when visiting. It is a very awesome attraction here in Columbus GA and I truly enjoy it.
