The National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center needs your vote.

The museum, located just outside the Maneuver Center of Excellence at Fort Benning, Georgia, is nominated in two categories of USA Today’s 2020 readers’ choice poll: Best Free Museum and Best History Museum.

The 190,000-square-foot museum is the only Army museum nominated in those categories.

“We were named Best Free Museum in 2016, and we’re determined to win again,” said retired Brig. Gen. Peter Jones, president and chief operating officer of the National Infantry Museum Foundation.

The museum opened in June 2009 with one guiding mission: to honor the legacy and valor of U.S. Army infantry soldiers.

With thousands of artifacts, monuments, interactive exhibits and video presentations on display, the National Infantry Museum is one of the nation’s leading military history destinations.

You can vote once a day until polls close at noon Eastern time Feb. 17. The winning museums will be announced Feb. 28.

“This is the kind of recognition and media coverage small-budget museums desperately need,” Jones said.
