The National Infantry Museum is thrilled to announce the museum once again will be fully open to the public beginning Tuesday, November 23 … Just in time to bring the relatives coming to town for Thanksgiving!

While many attractions reopened months ago, the museum has remained closed because of its commitment to keeping the Army’s fighting force safe from COVID-19. Soldiers in training conduct their heritage training at the museum, and it has been important to keep them from mingling with others that might be carrying the virus. But now, more than 90 percent of the Army has been vaccinated, and that has led to a loosening of restrictions.

Starting November 23, 2021, the museum will revert to its normal operating hours: Tuesday through Saturday 9am-5pm, and Sunday 11am-5pm. But with the holidays coming up, it will be wise to check our website, social media pages or the attached calendar for detailed information.

There’ll be a lot for visitors to see at the museum as 2021 comes to a close. The completely redesigned “Global Presence” gallery traces Infantry actions from 1989 to the present, and a new gallery commemorates the 20th anniversary of 9/11, which triggered the Global War on Terrorism.

The Giant Screen Theater will be screening The Polar Express 3D on limited dates December 4-23. Please see attached calendar for showtimes.

A limited slate of movies and reduced hours sit-down food service will be available, and the Rally Point Canteen concessions stand in the theater lobby will be well stocked with snacks and light meals.

To make sure a surge in the pandemic doesn’t shut us down again, we encourage visitors to wear masks and keep a safe distance from others.

Admission to the NIM is free. Donations at the door are much appreciated, especially as the museum works to recover pandemic-related losses.
