  • Such a great Tour of Hollowed Grounds. Tour guide was excellent with historical facts. We were able to see much of USMA at West Point. The Cadet Chapel is absolutely breathtaking. Worth the visit and tour to see such an honored place.
  • I have been living in NY for the past 5 years but never have I thought that The US Military Academy or commonly known as Westpoint is just within the state. The area has ample space for parking. We went on a Tuesday about noon. On the left of the Museum is the visitor center where you will be able to watch a 10 min video about the history of the USMA. In the building is a display of the famous graduates and a display of what a aspiring cadet has to go through. The is also a Gift shop for some souvenirs but don't expect much they obly cell t-shirts and some class memorabilia. To go in the visitor center is free. The museum had 4 levels divided into different exhibits. A walk through the museum is very informative and fun way of learning the past. What's amazing in going into the museum is for FREE.
