Airborne & Special Operations Museum
Dedicated to the unique United States Airborne and Special Operations sector of our armed forces, this 59,000 square foot, state-of-the-art museum is one of the premier attractions in the area and features exhibits and memorabilia from this sector's inception in 1940 to the present day. Educational programs are available.
I thoroughly enjoyed this museum. As a WWII buff, I found this museum loaded with insights and memorabilia no found in other places. I was far less intrigued by the sections about recent events, but that's just me I suppose.
The only negative I encountered were some parents who couldn't keep their children under control, but that isn't the museum's fault.
My sister is stationed at Ft. Brag in an Airborne Unit and wanted us to see the museum. I have to agree with most other reviews that it was beautiful and very organized. I loved the stone memorial walkway. The Museum is very updated, however there is a lot of reading that takes a lot of time. We were very glad we went and would like to go back to see some of the things that we know we missed.
Fantastic state of the art museum that takes you on a trip through the past, right up to the present saluting and honoring Special Operations and Airborne Forces of the United States. I was personally moved by and would highly recommend a trip to this museum. The museum is centerally located, however, if you have to go out of your way to see it, make the trip. Incredible!
We have been several times with family and friends. This museum is impressive and beautiful. Very informative... this would make a great field trip for older students. I enjoyed talking to some of the veterans who were working or visiting the museum, too. This place certainly makes you proud to be an American!
A friendly gentleman in uniform greeted us when we entered. He directed us to the woman at the information desk who was handing out maps and answering questions. It is a beautiful museum and very well organized. My boys and I walked around the museum and enjoyed the displays. The flight simulator was fun and the movie was informative. We each found something from the gift shop to take home.
friendly staff that adds information as you walk through the museum. the displays are well done and the simulator is great. my children love it, too. we have taken everyone who comes to visit and they are still talking about how much they enjoyed it.
As far as museums go this one is pretty good. It is a little limited but I think it does a good job showcasing what it has. It is a modern facility with a lot of room. Lots of parking. Please make a donation if you do visit - they need the money.
Was a wonderful learning experience for adults and grade school aged children. There are planes and Tanks from every era in which special forces were involved. There is also a Special Forces Park not far from the museum near the airport in Fayetteville. There is a small museum and memorial there as well.
