    The NIM has a walk through with videos, life sized figures of soldiers from our past wars and their personal stories. It also has a large room downstairs that can be used for formal events.

    If you do the simulators ask for a weapons overview first. We didn't get any tips on operation.

    If you have never been to the Smithsonian, then save your gas money because the Infantry Museum is as good as it gets. The Final 100 yards exhibit is sure to give you chills. A must-visit.

    We have the pleasure of working with NIM on their marketing needs, and know first hand what a gem this "place to remember" is. The exhibits. The IMAX. The Combat Simulators. One visit won't be enough!

    A world-class museum, right here in Columbus. The NIM Combat Simulators are pretty intense. Haven't seen an IMAX flick yet, but the restaurant is pretty good. If you live here & haven't been, shame!
