  • A fine tribute to Virginians in various wars, but the gallery room has only a couple of plaques for each major war with the most basic of overviews. The movie hall is the best attraction. Documentation from local experts/military about experiences all the way up through present day. Lovely place but if looking for history, not all there
  • Come out the weekend of April 22ND for the Remembrance walk. Purchase a flag for a Veteran family member or friend. Beautiful to see the flags with Name, Branch & year. The docents are quick to assist & amiable. Remarkable & our gratitude should never fail, past, present & future.
  • Great memorial that honors the men and women from Virginia who gave their lives in the wars from WWII to the present. Very moving. Good museum attached.
  • Gorgeous memorial, stunning views of the city and the river. It has a small museum as well; our children loved visiting.
  • This site is a wonderful memorial the Virginians lost in campaigns around the globe
