En español | The only museum dedicated to telling the story of the U.S. Army opened Veterans Day 2020, at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. The 185,000-square-foot National Museum of the United States Army not only presents artifacts and personal accounts of service members, but it honors active-duty soldiers, veterans and civilians who worked with the Army.

"The Army is people. They are our greatest strength and our most important weapon system,” said Gen. James C. McConville, Army chief of staff. “The National Museum of the United States Army is designed to tell the compelling and heroic stories of our people and take visitors on an exciting journey through the history of the U.S. Army as told through the American soldiers’ point of view."

Check out the museum's grounds, exhibits and tributes to those who served in America's oldest branch of the military.
