  • Eye-catching and beautiful memorial set in a tranquil environment. Like all war memorials, the main attraction is a shrine with the names of Virginians who served between World War II and the present. There is a small museum as well with relevant exhibits. The place is staffed by friendly veterans. One of them gave us a tour to explain what’s on display and share some of the more noteworthy stories of those who have served. The outdoor space offers scenic views of downtown Richmond. Free admission and parking.
  • Great experience, although according to a brochure, one could experience falling snow indoors, and I didn't find that during my visit. Parking is limited currently with the construction of the new ampetheater & outdoor area.
  • This is a place where anyone wishing to experience a sense of reverence and gratitude to those Virginians who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom will be touch by the vast list of the names of these heros. My visit left an ache in my soul.
  • Walk through the history like you are living it. Lot to know about and pay tribute and honor those " past time heroes and forgotten men and women " Lovely and enjoyable place.
  • The most underrated thing to do in Richmond. A beautiful tribute to those who serve. Advice: ask one of the friendly veteran staffers to give you a guided tour - you will learn a ton and have the privilege of spending time with one of our nation's veterans.
