If you’ve ever watched a toddler intently “driving” a plastic Cozy Coupe down the sidewalk, you know how kids yearn to do what grown-ups do.

The Airborne & Special Operations Museum tells a story. It’s a story of invention‚ bravery‚ honor and heroics – the story of hundreds of thousands of Americans who served their country in the airborne and special operations units of the armed forces. Visitors to the 59‚000-square-foot museum travel through a war-torn village in France‚ enter a grass hut for a military briefing in the Philippines and view all types of weapons ranging from brass knuckles to M642 machine guns used against American paratroopers by the German army.
