Right now, our nation is in a crisis, and the museum is no exception. After listening to public health officials, National Infantry Museum Foundation president, BG (Ret) Pete Jones, made the decision to close to the public to help stop the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). At this time, a reopen date is unknown.
There is no admission cost to the museum. The National Infantry Museum Foundation depends on visitation for cash in the donation boxes, food services, event rentals, and simulator/movie ticket sales to operate. When the museum is closed, there is no income. Only about 30 percent of our operating support comes from the Army. Closing the museum for a few weeks is not just an inconvenience; it's going to cause serious hardship on the Foundation's budget.
That is why we depend on friends like you. The National Infantry Museum is more than a military museum, it's a living memorial and your support is more critical now than ever.
