Military History Sites and Attractions

While a handful of individuals may have access to military bases or the Pentagon, most of us just view the military from the outside looking in. To truly get a sense of their history, culture - and sacrifice - we suggest you take a trip to visit the attractions, museums, and memorials that tell their story.

The state-of-the-art National Museum of the United States Army is brand new and their free timed-entry tickets are in hot demand. And with the National Museum of the Marine Corps and US Marine Corps Memorial, the United States Air Force Memorial, and the United States Navy Memorial and Naval Heritage Center all in our region, Fairfax County is the ideal base camp for exploring the military experience. We even have a handy itinerary for your touring pleasure. Plan now to visit Northern Virginia and salute our nation's military history!
