The Airborne & Special Operations Museum in Fayetteville is the only facility in the world that tells the comprehensive history of the U.S. Airborne and Special Forces. North Carolina has a long association with military training facilities and features military-themed attractions throughout the state with a special emphasis on Fayetteville and Cumberland County, the home of Fort Bragg, which houses the U.S. Army Airborne Forces and Special Forces, as well as U.S. Army Forces Command and U.S. Army Reserve Command. The Airborne & Special Operations Museum focuses on parachute and glider borne troops and the special operations forces and the heroic feats of this unique sector of the armed forces from its inception in 1940 to present-day operations. It features artifacts, life-size dioramas, audio and visual displays, and a 24-seat motion simulator that allows visitors to get the experience of a helicopter attack.
