The National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center covers 190,000 square feet of space. You could spend days here and still not see everything, however you can get a good overview of all the galleries in about two hours. If you’d like to tour World War II Company Street, sign up at the Information Desk. Test your soldiering skills at our Rifle Range and Combat Simulators. And when your feet get tired, take a break in the stunning IMAX Theatre!


Because a trip to the National Infantry Museum is walking-intensive, wheelchairs are available at no cost from the coat check. Our facility is fully accessible to differently-abled guests, with a team of volunteers dedicated to making your visit a truly memorable experience.

Pet Policy

Please be advised that pets are NOT allowed in the museum or by the parade field and stadium. Please make arrangements for your pets prior to your visit to the museum. Certified Service Animals are allowed. For questions, please contact our Information Desk.
