  • To me, this is a holy place. The reverence is palpable-- from the care and artistry of the design, to the placement on the banks of the James. I feel very sad when I visit, seeing all those names of V...  more »

  • I stopped by on a bit of whim looking to kill time, and I must say I am really glad I did. It is very well done, lots of fun military nostalgia, but most importantly very nice tribute to those who sacrificed so I i could drive around and visit places like this on whim. On of the staff Wilton Curtis was awesome! He checked in with me on my wanderings and gave me some great background on all the material as well as conveying some of his life experiences as an "Air Force type". We as Americans don't take the time to give a little of our time to learn about those who gave ALL of their time to us...it is the least we can do.
  • I've been here on a number of occasions, from simple visits to company functions in rented out space, and I'm always struck by the simple but refined elegance of the memorial. The museum displays are excellent, easy to see up close and well documented. There are a variety of educational opportunities, including well done films, and the vista of the James River and City of Richmond make for amazing photography. The staff at the Memorial are wonderful people who make everyone feel welcome.
  • It is in a really pretty spot. With a nice memorial around it. The museum inside is small, but it's still fun. Also the staff are very friendly.
  • Being in a true shrine to those that gave everything is always an emotional experience. Being a native Virginian and having grown up and lived here my entire life it's very moving to see all the names etching into the stone and glass walls of the outer walkway! The interior has fantastic galleries, although, if you look close enough, you'll find a few missteps with regard to labelling.
  • Beautiful memorial and museum. Wonderful volunteers who are knowledgeable and more than willing to show you around and explain the displays.
