Museum Update

The U.S. Army has announced that the National Museum of the United States Army will open on November 11, 2020. The Museum will be the first to tell the entire history of the nation’s oldest military service, immersing visitors in the story 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 will remain open every day, except December 25. Free, timed-tickets are required for entry and available for request through the Museum’s website at Due to high demand, the Foundation encourages individuals to wait for their ticket confirmation before making travel plans.

To ensure visitors safety, the Museum is preparing to follow state, federal and U.S. Army health guidelines. The Museum will promote social distancing by limiting the number of visitors in the building, offering ‘grab and go’ refreshments in the café, modifying some of the interactive exhibits, and enhancing cleaning procedures.

The Army’s opening ceremony will also be limited to a small gathering of Army leaders, but the occasion will be livestreamed to allow people around the world to witness the historic moment. The most current Museum health protocols will be available on the Museum’s website and updated regularly.
