The museum, located on Jackson Blvd. across from post headquarters, was established in 1972 with an initial collection of 20 artifacts. Today, the collection has grown to over 3,800 pieces of military weapons, uniforms, and vehicles from World War I to present.

The museum uses an assortment of military weapons, uniforms and other equipment to illustrate how the American soldier has been trained to perform his duties in peacetime and war. Theses displays are supplemented by exhibitions that deal with special areas of interest, such as the installation's namesake (President Andrew Jackson), women who have served on post, and the major units that have trained at Fort Jackson since World War I. Several typical military vehicles and artillery pieces from World War I to the present are displayed outside the museum building, which is adjacent to a small picnic area.
