The facility displays United States Army weapons, uniforms, and cannon from the 18th century to present, as well as military-themed art. Current exhibits cover the Revolutionary War, World War II, and much more.

Located in Bay Ridge, the main gate is located at Fort Hamilton Parkway and 101st Street at the foot of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. Remember, since the museum is on an active military base, all guests must bring photo ID. Admission is free, but be sure to call ahead because they can close early. 718-630-4349.
