Opportunities to become involved with the museum are always available. The Museum Friends program and engraved paving stones are available for purchase. The stones that line the ASOM’s Memorial Garden and go around Iron Mike are a fitting way to honor veterans and Family members, or to simply support the museum. Volunteers are always needed at the museum’s information desk and as docents helping to interpret the galleries to visitors. As an educational resource, military groups, schools and other groups are encouraged to visit the museum.
The museum is located at 100 Bragg Blvd., in downtown Fayetteville at the corner of Bragg Boulevard and Hay Street. The museum is easily accessible from Interstate 95 and centrally located on the East Coast. Hours of operations are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. Though normally closed on Monday, the museum is open on federal holidays should they fall on a Monday. The museum is closed on Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day. While always welcome, groups are encouraged to call ahead for planning purposes. Admission to the museum is free. Prices for “Descending from the Clouds” is $4 and the Motion Simulator is $5 or $8 for a combination ticket. Tickets are available in the museum gift shop, which has an outstanding selection of airborne and special operations books, prints, clothing, jewelry and other specialty items.
