A statue of a U.S. Army Ranger leads the way into the Ranger Gallery at the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center. Dignitaries gathered to dedicate the 2nd Regiment Gallery, background, in March 2009.


While most national parks and services are now closed due to government shutdown, locally the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Store will remain open, with the exception of four era galleries that are controlled by government civil service employees, according to museum officials.

The International Stage (1898-1920), World Power (1920-1947), The Cold War (1947-1989) and The Sole Super Power (1989-present) will be closed.

The other galleries and attractions will be open during their regular hours of 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday. They are closed on Mondays.
