The museum was established in 1959, in a warehouse using items initially collected for a recruiting exhibit, and got a main building in 1976. An open-air pavilion foraviation exhibits opened in 1987. Visitors can enter Fort Eustis to see the museum and four outdoor parks filled with more than 100 trucks, vessels, trains, aircraft, and other cargo handling equipment.
