IMPORTANT INFORMATION:  Gaining access to Fort Lee can be a somewhat lengthy process depending on the traffic.  We anticipate a high volume of visitors for the museum reopening so we recommend you plan adequate time for access so you don’t miss out on the celebration.  Those possessing Common Access Cards (CAC), Military ID or Military Dependent IDs generally will not encounter delays.  If you do not possess these types of identification, you will need to visit the Lee Gate Visitor Control Center for a background check and you must have a valid ID.  It is strongly suggested you visit the following link on Fort Lee’s website to understand the process and what information is needed.  Further, it is recommended you obtain a Visitor’s Pass for the duration of the Event (Nov 1 – 3).  You can submit the following form to Fort Lee in advance to have your pass ready upon your arrival.  We strongly urge you to read the information contained on Ft Lee’s site.
