National Museum of the United States Army

The National Museum of the United States Army provides the only comprehensive portrayal of Army History and traditions through the eyes of the American Soldier. By preserving, interpreting and exhibiting invaluable artifacts and exceptional stories, the National Army Museum creates learning opportunities for all visitors and bonds the American people to their oldest military service.


The National Army Museum is an enduring effort to tell the Army's story and honor the accomplishments, sacrifices and commitment of American Soldiers. The Museum is the first comprehensive and truly national museum to capture, display and interpret over 245 years of Army history. The Museum brings to life that history in times of war and peace as told through those on the front lines. The Museum also offers educational experiences illustrating the Army's role in building and defending our nation, humanitarian missions and technological and medical breakthroughs built on Army ingenuity.

The Museum is a joint effort between the U.S. Army and the Army Historical Foundation, a non-profit organization. The Army Historical Foundation is constructing the building with private funds. The U.S. Army is providing the infrastructure, roads, utilities and exhibit work that transform the building into a museum.

The U.S. Army owns and operates the Museum. The Army Historical Foundation will continue its fundraising role in support of Museum programs and will manage all retail, catering and special events.

The 185,000 square-foot facility is built on a 84-acre site at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. The Museum welcomes visitors through a publicly accessible and dedicated entrance.
