The ceremony and groundbreaking of the new National Army Museum was recently held at Fort Belvoir. The museum will be free-of-charge to visitors, and is expected to open in 2019. Plans for the 185,000-square-foot facility include more than 15,000 pieces of art, 30,000 artifacts, documents and images. In the museum, Army weapons, uniforms, equipment, and letters written by Soldiers at war will help visitors better connect with their Army. The museum will also be a virtual museum without walls having connectivity with all of the Army museums.
