Visitor Center · Traveler Resource
A visit to United States Military Academy Visitors Center lends an insight into the lives of young cadets and educates visitors on the history of West Point. Because much of the campus is off-limits to unauthorized visitors, you'll have to take a bus tour to see the grounds. As part of the tour, you'll be driven around the facility with a docent instructing you on the school's history and its students. If you don't have enough time for the bus tour, you can still visit the small museum in the visitor center to get a taste for academy life. Visit Trophy Point to see the academy's collection of trophy cannons and for a view of the Hudson River.
