  • The war memorial is both solemn and educational. Staffed by volunteers who are eager to tour you around. Plan to spend at least two hours here. This is a fitting tribute to Virginians who have served or are currently serving in uniform.
  • 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.
  • One of the best views in Richmond is here, as is a very moving, well handled memorial. Currently being renovated to include the War on Terror, looking forward to seeing how it turns out.
  • My husband and I recently got married here. It was the perfect venue to celebrate our new life together while honoring those who have sacrificed so much for our freedoms. The staff was simply amazing. Our event coordinator Kate Belleman could not have been any better. Despite the venue still undergoing some construction, VAWM did everything they could to make our event special and beautiful. I highly recommend holding your events at places such as the Virginia War Memorial and other museums. Your money is certainly well spent supporting our Veterans. Thank you again for making our wedding day perfect!
  • One gem.of a war memorial , it has a amphitheatre , a education center that has two levels with a crisp and accurate summary of all major wars . Must visit when you plan a trip to Richmond
