About The Museum


Established in August 2000, the U.S. Army Airborne and Special Operations Museum (ASOM) is a first-class institution that efficiently and effectively captures, preserves, exhibits, and presents the material culture and heritage of the U.S. Army Airborne and Special Operations Forces from 1940 and into the future. The Museum celebrates over 80 years of Army Airborne and Special Operations history and honors our nation’s Soldiers – past, present, and future. 

The U.S. Army owns and operates the Museum while the Airborne and Special Operations Foundation manages the Museum store, Motion Simulator, and Memorial Paver and Monument Program. Within the Army organizational structure, the Museum is part the Army Museum Enterprise and falls under the umbrella of the U.S. Army Center of Military History, whose higher headquarters is the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC).
