Tickets are now available for the National Museum of the United States Army, which opens on Veterans Day.

Free, timed-entry tickets are required as museum staff work to manage capacity and implement enhanced health and safety measures while providing an optimal experience to visitors.

Tickets are available on the museum website here, and they must be reserved online ahead of time. Walk-up tickets will not be available.

The National Museum of the United States Army opens Nov. 11 after a five-month delay because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The museum, which has been in the works for years, will be the first and only museum to showcase the entire history of the U.S. Army since its establishment in 1775. The 185,000-square-foot building sits on more than 80 acres of publicly accessible land at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, and more than 700,000 visitors are expected to visit each year.

“The museum is stunning, and it is an honor to present this history in a way that shows the connection between the American soldier, the U.S. Army and the nation,” said Tammy Call, the museum’s director, in a statement. 

The museum is a joint effort between the Army, which owns and manages the museum, and the Army Historical Foundation, which led a $200 million privately funded campaign to build the museum.

The Association of the U.S. Army is the single-largest museum donor, contributing $42.5 million to the project. A third of AUSA’s chapters have also donated money.

A small ceremony to mark the museum’s Nov. 11 opening will be livestreamed on the museum’s website. More information will be available once details are finalized.
