The National Museum of the United States Army will reopen its doors in June after closing in mid-December last year due to coronavirus concerns. The museum, located in Fort Belvoir, Virginia, opened for the first time on Veterans Day in 2020 before abruptly closing 34 days after it opened. According to wtop.com, "June 14 is the date that the U.S. Army celebrates its “birthday,” the day Congress passed a resolution establishing the formation of a continental army to oppose British forces in Boston on that day in 1775. The Museum is the first to capture, display and interpret the Army’s history by telling stories through the eyes of Soldiers, the release stated." As per wtop.com, "The museum features galleries, exhibits, a multisensory 300-degree theater, a rooftop garden, and hundreds of rare and historic treasures. Tickets are available through the museum’s website. All tickets are timed and must be reserved in advance. COVID-19 mask guidance will be based on CDC guidelines, the Department of the Army, and Virginia’s directives closer to the opening date. The museum will update its website to reflect the most current visitor information."
