Description

The U.S. Army Intelligence Museum takes its theme as the evolution of the intelligence art within the U.S. Army. It is in building 41411, just down the street from the Fort Huachuca Museum and its Annex.

The United States Army Intelligence Museum is located at Fort Huachuca, Arizona. It features the history of American military intelligence from the Revolutionary War to present.

As a formal organization, Military Intelligence made a late appearance in the U.S. Army, waiting more than 100 years to debut as a tiny section within the Adjutant General's Office. It would have to waiter another three decades for the demands of the 20th century warfare to validate Military Intelligence as an equal partner on the War Department staff. It took the leadership of men like Arthur Wagner, Ralph Van Deman, Parker Hitt and Charles Young to sell a simple idea: "Intelligence is for Commanders." Today that principle is the cornerstone of U.S. Army intelligence doctrine. How that idea has evolved over the last 200 years is the subject of a new museum at Fort Huachuca. It is a story that has waited patiently to be told. Like the intelligence corps in general, this chapter made a late appearance in the volume of American military history. It existed in the minds of a few historians and has been sketched out in a few thin history books, but now for the first time it gains dimension, the dimension of the artifact that connects us to the past. The Army Intelligence Museum, brought to you by the same team that built the Fort Huachuca Museum, acts as a central repository for those items of history that help put the military intelligence story in perspective. Opened on 2 November 1995, it is managed by the US Army Garrison.
