The National Museum of the United States Army will offer a unique opportunity for the American people to connect with their Army and the people who serve in it. Visitors to the National Army Museum will learn the tremendous impact the Army has had on our nation’s history and culture. 

Originally scheduled to open on June 4, the Museum will make its debut to the public when conditions can ensure the health and safety of all visitors and staff.

The museum’s galleries will offer a variety of experiences for school groups, veterans’ reunions, history and military enthusiasts, and family outings alike. The galleries include a state-of-the-art Experiential Learning Center with high-tech, simulated Army training that uses real-life scenarios to teach G-STEM skills. There’s also the Army Theater, which will show the Museum’s film “Of Noble Deeds”—an exploration of what it truly means to be an American Soldier.

The National Museum of the United States Army will require free, timed tickets for all visitors and will require advanced group tour reservations. You can enhance your visit with pre-ordered group boxed lunches, discounted Virtual Reality and Ride Simulator tickets, or utilizing educational resources for specialized instruction or programs.

As we navigate the operational impact of this challenging time, we are dedicated to working with you to make future plans. The Museum’s Visitor Engagement team is available to answer any questions on future itineraries and ticketing status as soon as circumstances permit.

With uncertain travel restrictions nationwide, along with evolving state tourism guidance for public spaces and gatherings, the Museum is pausing group tour reservations for now, but we promise it will be worth the wait. Visit for the latest updates.
