National Museum of the United States Army – Virtual Tour

The National Museum of the United States Army is the official Museum for the history of the United States Army and is due for opening just outside Washington, DC.

The Museum aims to honor America’s soldiers, preserve history, and educate about the Army’s role in American history. The ground was broken for the new Museum facility in 2016 and it is scheduled to open in 2020.

The main building exhibits aspects of the United States Army Center of Military History. Outside, this facility is a park with gardens and a parade ground. 

The U.S. Army will operate and maintain the Museum and Army Historical Foundation will be responsible for all revenue-generating operations.

Please check the Museum’s website for the opening dates.

United States Army

The United States Army is the land warfare service branch of the United States Armed Forces. It is one of the eight U.S. uniformed services.

As the oldest branch of the U.S. military, its roots go back to the Continental Army, which was formed in 1775 to fight the American Revolutionary War (1775–1783).

The Congress of the Confederation created the United States Army in 1784 to replace the disbanded Continental Army.

The U.S. Army is headed by a civilian senior appointed civil servant, the secretary of the Army, and by a chief military officer, the chief of staff of the Army.

The Regular Army is about 476,000 soldiers; the Army National Guard has some 343,000 troops, and the U.S. Army Reserve has 199,000 soldiers.
