Army Museum reopens June 14

An M4 Sherman tank display in the National Museum of the U.S. Army, set to reopen June 14 at Fort Belvoir. Timed tickets are free, and now available for reservation at theNMUSA.org.

The National Museum of the United States Army will reopen on June 14, the Army's 246th birthday.

The museum at Fort Belvoir officially opened in November 2020, but then closed a month later due to the pandemic.

"June will be a month of celebration as we recognize Army Heritage Month, the Army's birthday and the reopening of the Army museum," said John Whitley, acting Secretary of the Army. "As the museum tells the history of our American Soldiers and honors their accomplishments and sacrifices, we will also reflect on their more recent service to our nation, including their contributions to COVID-19 and disaster-relief efforts, and the protection they provide us all."

The museum is the first comprehensive and truly national museum to capture, display and interpret the Army's history by telling stories through the eyes of Soldiers. Its displays and interactive-learning exhibits illustrate the Army's role in building and defending our nation, as well as Army humanitarian missions and technological and medical breakthroughs built on Army ingenuity.

In addition to the galleries and exhibits, the museum features a multisensory 300-degree theater, a rooftop garden and hundreds of historic treasures rarely or never-before-seen by the public.

Free, timed-entry tickets are now available through the museum's website at http://www.theNMUSA.org. All tickets must be reserved in advance online, and there is a limit of five tickets per request.
