Fort Riley Museum Renovation Project Update

The year 2017 has been an amazing year for both the U.S. Cavalry and the 1st Infantry Division Museums. Besides continuing to be the most visited location on post by the general public, we continue to commemorate the centennial of the 1st Infantry Division and its formation for service in World War I.

Our capstone to this has been our temporary exhibit, "Duty First: 100 Years of the Big Red One," conducted in partnership with the Flint Hills Discovery Center in Man­hattan, Kansas. As we have participated in both local and national commemorations of World War I, we have been immensely honored by the amount of support we have received from the division, the garrison, units and our com­munity partners.
