    One of the best museums that I have ever visited. The last 100 yards entrance to the museum is mind blowing. Absolutely worth a visit.

    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.

    Entrance is free! A thorough history of the infantryman. Unbelievable war trophies and (for a fee) some awesome simulators.

    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!

    In addition to all the great artifacts and interactive exhibits, the NIM offers the most immersive entertainment options in GA, including the only IMAX theatre between ATL and Pensacola.

    Bring the family, it's free!! But they do ask for a small donation of $5, go have lunch in the Fife & Drum and the do all of the simulators and learn the history of our American solider. PRICELESS

    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!
