(4.7/5 based on 200 reviews on the web)
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial State Park Friends Group is a grassroots organization whose sole purpose is the support of Vietnam Veterans Memorial State Park. It consists of private citizens from all over New Mexico and was formed in 2012 when the state’s budget forced the reduction of budget and staff. There are no paid employees; all members are volunteers. Every dollar raised by the Friends Group through regular donations or through fundraising events is used directly for the park.

  • From the moment you arrive and read the dedication, you know you are in for an emotional ride! Who knew how much female personnel meant to this effort. So enlightening to see this and other stories, p...  more »
  • This was a beautiful Chapel and surrounding grounds and Museum dedicated to the Vietnam Veterans. Since I lost friends who died and Mt husband lost friends who died in the War, it was emotional, but g...  more »
  • Beautiful memorial off the beaten path. The visitor center was closed when we visited, but the chapel was open. It's a hidden, quiet little place for reflection. I wish the visitor center had been ope...  more »
  • This veterans memorial puts the Vietnam veterans memorial in DC to shame. Very thoughtfully arranged stories, pictures, artifacts and history. Worth a visit if you're in the area. Worth a drive if you're in the surrounding areas. To the previous reviewer, Brenda.. Seriously?! If your friend is going to donate $20k worth of artifacts, you call ahead first and make arrangements! You don't just show up somewhere unannounced with that kind of artifact donation, and expect the person who handles that sort of thing to be sitting around waiting for you! Your down ranking for this site is entirely self-centered and self-righteous.
  • The place is the most beautiful veteran site in America. A Medal of Honor memorial that has a marker honoring men. The chapel is so quite and beautiful. I am sorry I would never support this place again--- a friend wanted to donate thousands of dollars of Vietnam artifacts to honor a Medal of Honor Vietnam veteran--- was driving from Texas with gifts worth 20,000 dollars or so -- was told the only person that could accept was on vacation for 2 weeks. How sad !!!! Nobody in charge--- for 2 weeks !!!!
  • visited in January when snow was on the ground. it was quiet but it was very beautiful and scenic.
  • One of the best Vietnam War Museums I've ever been to. Very educational and well done.
  • Wonderful tribute in majestic scenery.
