The Army Historical Foundation is excited to share the latest National Museum of the United States Army reopening update. The Museum will reopen to the public on the U.S. Army’s birthday, June 14, 2021. Free, timed-entry tickets will be required for entry and are available through the Museum’s website, theNMUSA.org. The Museum’s website also includes the enhanced health protocols to keep visitors safe as they explore more than 246 years of U.S. Army history.
“As the first national museum dedicated to telling the Army story in its entirety, it is only fitting that we reopen the Museum on the Army’s birthday,” said Museum Director Tammy Call. “The Army’s history is our nation’s history, and we look forward to welcoming visitors once again to share the accomplishments, courage, and commitment of the American Soldier.”
The Museum first opened its doors on November 11, 2020, immersing visitors in the history of the U.S. Army through compelling galleries, moving exhibits, a multisensory 300-degree theater, tranquil rooftop garden, and hundreds of historic treasures rarely or never-before-seen by the public. The Museum then temporarily closed on December 14, 2020, for COVID-19 public health precautions.
“The Museum is a world-class destination for all ages to learn about the Army’s role in American history,” said Ret. Lt. Gen. Roger Schultz, President of the Army Historical Foundation. “We are thrilled to be able to safely open our doors once again and show visitors that this Museum has been worth the wait.”
