The National Museum of the U.S. Army will be the premier space for your event.  

Our team is dedicated to translating your vision into a successful and memorable occasion, as the Museum offers a variety of immersive experiences that will enhance any function. Augment your event with after-hours access to our Experiential Learning Center (ELC), or show a special film in our 306 degree theater. All of these services are available under one roof. We strive to create a unique experience in our one-of-a-kind venue that matches the vision you have for your event.

Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, some of the exhibit gallery finishing work was suspended, impacting the project timeline. The Museum will open when the conditions can ensure the health and safety of Museum visitors and staff, and the Museum is ready to begin daily operations. This delay and the current health emergency has impacted Special Event rentals and bookings as new guidance and policy is fluid during this time. The Museum is not taking reservations for 2020, and will continue to assess feasibility of events into 2021 as the COVID-19 landscape evolves. If you have any questions or are interested in discussing a future event vision, our planning team are fielding requests through the form below.
