Embracing the legacy of Airborne & Special Operations Soldiers who came before us and who now continue with a greater purpose.

In 2000, when the U.S. Army Airborne and Special Operations Museum opened, our nation was introduced to the milestone makers and groundbreakers of our time.  Since then, the U.S. experienced 9/11 and 20-plus years of war and today we see Airborne and Special Operations Soldiers serving next to partner nations worldwide. As thousands of visitors enjoy the wide expanse of existing gallery space and exhibits, the U.S. Army Airborne & Special Operations Museum team is developing a state-of-the-art exhibit space plan to showcase more artifacts and events in military history.

Work has begun on an updated storyline for the gallery, and by 2025, visitors will be inspired by a transformed 21st century gallery with new artifacts, new stories, immersive exhibits, and interactive technologies to enhance the visitors learning experience. In this reimagined gallery, visitors will interact with history, walking in the footsteps of our nation’s elite Airborne and Special Operations Soldiers, with the aid of diverse multimedia, like sound, lights, images, and sensory effects. Using augmented reality, guests will have an opportunity to experience, in a very personal way, the inspiring acts of valor and bravery exhibited by our Army’s Airborne and Special Operations Soldiers, from World War II through the ongoing Global War on Terrorism.

Such an extensive gallery renovation brings with it an exciting future for visitors of all ages. But we need your help. Upgrading exhibits, installing groundbreaking technology, and creating a much improved and expanded platform for learning are essential as we continue to educate Soldiers and the public about the U.S. Army’s storied, Airborne and Special Operations legacy.

Our goal of $15 million will be achieved with the help of individuals, corporations and foundations who know the value of this legacy project and understand the importance of military history and the lessons learned by the heroes who are part of the story.
Now is the time to get involved and commit to help us build on the future so that generations of visitors experience the history and stories of selfless service by those who wear the cloth of our nation. Without friends like you who understand the importance of the Army’s Airborne and Special Operations history, we could not fulfill this mission to inspire, engage and educate generations to come.
