Special Exhibits

This smaller exhibit gallery allows for the presentation of stories not told in the main gallery, and changes from time to time. Located just to the side of the main exhibit gallery, this space is open during regular museum hours.

From the museum’s first special exhibit, which displayed a collection of Army artwork, to the high-tech Soldiers: The Global War on Terrorism exhibit that incorporated four large flat-screen monitors, the gallery is designed to cover an ever changing and wide variety of topics.

Past exhibits include:

  • Army Art
  • From Dunn to D-Day: Remembering Bill Lee
  • Korea: A War Remembered
  • Evolution of Our Community: Fort Bragg and Fayetteville
  • Evolution of a Friendship: German-American Relations
  • Crossing the Rhine: The 17th Airborne
  • De Oppresso Liber: Special Forces at 50

The Airborne & Special Operations Museum Foundation supports the museum with marketing, advertising and financial support for its programs and exhibits. Opening the doors on August 16th, 2000, the 60th anniversary of the original United States Army’s Test Platoon’s first parachute jump, the museum offers free admission, a main exhibit gallery, temporary gallery, four-story tall theater, video theater and a motion simulator ride. It is located in Historic Downtown Fayetteville on the corner of Bragg Boulevard and Hay Street, adjacent to the city’s Freedom Memorial Park and the recently built North Carolina Veteran’s Park. The main gallery is designed as a self-guiding tour, in chronological order, through the history of the airborne and special operations soldiers, from 1940 to the present. The temporary gallery changes throughout the year and displays a myriad of exhibits pertaining to the United States Army, airborne and special operation units through their history and conflicts from World War II to the present. For a nominal fee visitors can ride the 24 seat motion simulator. Find our privacy policy here.
