Location: Columbus, Georgia
This impressive two-story, 170,000-square-foot venue in Columbus, Georgia, tells the story of the Infantry Warrior. The 9,000-square-foot marble grand rotunda serves as both the museum’s grand entrance and reception hall and is accented by a glass-enclosed Hall of Valor. Six portals ranging from 2,763 square feet to 5,602 square feet were constructed off the main gallery to display distinct eras in infantry history and priceless treasures gathered from over the years. The museum features exhibition spaces, a 300-seat 3-D IMAX theater, interactive displays and ceremony parade ground.
The museum site is adjacent to Fort Benning, home of the United States Army Infantry, and includes over 200 acres of green space.
