Groups are welcome at the U.S. Army Airborne & Special Operations Museum.  Contact the Visitor Services Coordinator about scheduling your group’s visit by filling out the information request form, calling (910) 643-2768, or emailing

Buses are welcome to use the traffic circle to load and unload passengers at the front door. We ask that when empty, buses use the far rear of the parking lot to allow our other visitors easier access.

School Groups

The museum does not have a required adult to student ratio. We do ask that the school provide adequate adult supervision for the group. While in the exhibit gallery it will work best if larger groups can be divided into smaller groups of around 20 people.

We encourage you to allow time for your class to visit the museum Gift Shop. There are many items available for under a five dollars. The gift shop is fairly small, so as a courtesy to the staff please help us by keeping smaller groups together for their gift shop visit and letting only one group in at a time.

There is a strict no-food policy within the museum.  With advance notice, trashcans can be provided in the Reflection Garden behind the museum to allow for group lunches outside in the garden area.


The Airborne & Special Operations Museum is one of the most advanced Army museums and prides itself on attention to detail, evident in the accessibility of the museum to all visitors. Handicap parking is available near the entrance, and all exhibits and the grounds are designed for everyone to enjoy. Gently sloping walkways surround the building, and a wide sweeping path winds its way through the main exhibit area. The museum has three wheelchairs available for those who require them.


There is plenty of parking available in front of the museum, and we have the ability to accommodate RVs and Buses. Large vehicle parking is available along Hillsborough Street and in the parking lot adjacent to the North Carolina State Veterans Park.

Gift Shop

Airborne & Special Operations Museum Foundation Gift Shop

The Airborne & Special Operations Museum Gift Shop features a variety of items relevant to airborne and special operations, including books, coins, toys, clothing, and much more.  The entire inventory may be found online:

The Gift Shop accepts all major credit cards and does not offer discounts.  However, members of our Friends Program receive a percentage off their total purchase.  Consider becoming a Friend today!


The Airborne & Special Operations Museum has on display hundreds of rare and significant artifacts. Preserving these artifacts is a full time job, as time and environmental factors continue to slowly take their toll. It is for this reason, and to be courteous to other visitors, that no food, beverages or smoking is allowed inside the building. Unfortunately, many of the artifacts aren’t able to handle the demands of bright lights, and we ask that no flash photography be taken in the galleries. Professional photographers may inquire if they wish to take limited photographs.


The Airborne & Special Operations Museum Foundation is a 501(c)3 and all gifts are tax-deductible according to the extent of the law.  Our tax identification number is 56-1785731.

Recently, the ASOM Foundation earned a 2020 Silver Seal of Transparency from Guidestar.  If you have any questions, please contact us:
