Have visited the memorial museum several times. Took a young woman with us recently who remarked upon entering, "Weren't women only allowed to be nurses?" She had an eye-opening experience, just after watching the introductory video! Albeit very small, the museum shows how over time women have taken on more and more roles and have played an increasingly greater part... 更多
This museum has wonderful memorabilia and photos of women throughout US history from spies to auxiliary forces to present day "I can do anything men can do " moments. Do not miss the opportunity to include this beautiful museum in your trip to Arlington. The entrance is hidden among the arches of the crescent with a fabulous view of DC... 更多

Wonderful exhibits highlight the service of America's Women in the military! Also a bathroom and water fountain inside and a small gift shop. Get a nice priced and sized Iwo Jima statue here! More people should go inside and see what's there.
The building itself is nicely designed with great lighting. I enjoyed all the exhibits, a walk through the history of women in the military.
This memorial is a testament to women who have given their lives to the United States from the Revolution War to present day. As a woman, it was emotional to read the stories of the women whose service was ignored by our government for year, especially those who paid their way home after their service. Side note, this was the... 更多
