I was surprised at how large the museum is, and how worth a visit. There are volunteers there (I think) who are happy to offer tours. The outside area with the large statue and the flame are quite lovely, and the views are stunning. Very much worth a visit.
Much more than we expected. If you are into military items, they have a fantastic collection of uniforms and weapons from all eras. Definitely worth the stop.
This was a touching memorial. The main statue was a lovely woman wit an eternal flame at her feet. There was a wall of glass with the names of all Virginians who gave their life in the world war. On the marble wall the names of soldiers from other wars. The site overlooks the city and river.
Have lived in Richmond for over 50 years and never been to the War Memorial. It is a place where you can review history and if you have relatives that participated in some of our nations conflicts maybe even see the part they played.
The story of men and women that fought for our country and their story's. This place has so much to see. The volunteers served our country and have great stories to tell. One of them is 96 years old and still volunteer on Wednesdays. I wish I could have heard his story. The veterans that were here can tell you... 更多
Loved it!! The staff are very friendly and explain everything to you! So much to learn and see here! Definitely a place to take your older kids to as they can appreciate the learning experience versus taking younger children who might not retain the info. Awesome place!
A wonderful place to hold an event. Great view overlooking the James River. Many exhibits and interior meeting rooms as well as historic movies shown at request in small theater.
Your kids (and older ones too) need to visit here. Many displays, information, static & multi-media along with the Memorial portion. There's way more to this site than meets the eye. Let your kids know more about the price paid so they could live here in the land of the free (paid for by the brave). Wish more older folks... 更多
A very beautiful and solemn memorial to the fallen war dead of Virginia. Excellent done displays from the various American war's, Wall panels with every single Virginian killed during fighting. Thed grounds are well kept and scenic. You need to see this to appreciate it's beauty. Visit it when in Richmond
