The National Museum of the United States Army opened its doors on Nov. 11 – Veterans Day.
Army Secretary Ryan D. McCarthy described the new museum as “a place for members of the total Army family to gather and share their stories, while also creating an opportunity for visitors to connect with our nation’s history through the eyes and voices of our soldiers.”
The facility is located on a tract at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, that is accessible to the general public. Its features include the Experimental Learning Center, which presents visitors with hands-on educational activities. The experience incorporates geography, science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Due to the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) pandemic, visitors will be required to adhere to health and safety measures. Tickets are free, but with timed entry and managed capacity to prevent crowds.
