  • A war memorial for the many Virginian Souls perished during US wars. The wall of names is both breathtaking and unnerving. The friendly and attentive staff bring this memorial to life.  more »
  • A monument to World War I, this memorial was built in 1932 and stands 240 ft tall. The bells still are functional. Check on line to see when they ring. It's impressive.  more »
  • I had not been to the War Memorial in decades, so was pleasantly surprised at how it had grown. We had a guided tour by one of our group's spouses. One of the vets associated with the model plane hang...  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.
