The US has announced it will open the National Museum of the United States Army to the public in June 2020.

It will be the only museum to ever have told the 244-year history of the US Army in its entirety.

The museum will use the stories of soldiers to bring to life the events from the earliest militias to the present day.

Public admission to the building in Fort Belvoir, Virginia, will be free.

The museum is a joint effort between the U.S. Army and the Army Historical Foundation, a non-profit organisation, and 750,000 visitors are expected in the first year.

The Army will own and operate the museum 364 days a year (Picture: US Army).
