LTG Roger Schultz President and Kerri Kline VP of Operations are hear to talk about the National Museum of the United States Army.
The National Museum of the United States Army (NMUSA) is planned as the official museum for the history of the United States Army and is under construction just outside Washington, DC. The objectives of the museum are to honor America's soldiers, preserve army history, and educate the public about the army's role in American history.
The National Museum is located on 84 acres at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, 20 miles south of Washington, D.C. Ground was broken for the museum in September 2016, and it is currently projected to open sometime in 2020. The main building will be approximately 185,000 square feet and display selections from the Center of Military History. Outside this facility will be a park with a memorial garden and parade ground. Space is being planned to accommodate ceremonies, reenactments, lectures, educational programs, conferences and reunions.
The National Museum of the United States Army will serve as the capstone of the Army Museum Enterprise and provide the only comprehensive portrayal of Army history and traditions. The National Army Museum will celebrate the selfless service and sacrifice of over 30 million men and women who have worn the Army uniform since 1775.
