National Museum of the United States Army
Service and Sacrifice
Located in Fort Belvoir, Virginia, just under 30 miles south of Washington D.C. you will find a truly one-of-a-kind museum experience at the new National Museum of the United States Army.
This museum is still under construction but sits on 80 acres of Fort Belvoir property. The museum is a magnificent state of the art facility that will honor American Soldiers and preserve the history of America's oldest military branch. It is meant to be a 'special, central place where soldiers and army veterans and their families can reflect, remember, and enjoy the enduring spirit of Army camaraderie.'
Guests will be able to enjoy the only comprehensive portrayal of Army history and traditions, highlighting the sacrifice of over 30 million men and women who have worn the sacred uniform since 1775 during their visit. The exhibits inside will provide interactive educational experiences that explain the Army's role in creating and defending our nation for over 240 years, the exhibits using the latest technological advances to bring the story to life.
You will see over 15,000 pieces of Army Art and over 30,000 Army artifacts, documents, images, and more within the entire museum collection, many of the artifacts rare, priceless, or previously unseen to the public. These items will be scattered throughout 3 main galleries; Soldier Stories, Fighting for The Nation, and Army and Society. Outside you will be able to explore a Memorial Garden, onsite Amphitheater, and interpretive trail.
