Located on the lonely hill it is deceiving what a treasure it is. Anyone with a heart should stop by and pay their respects to the men and women who served our country. Well worth the chance to stretch your legs and your minds. Don't miss the chance to stop if you are anywhere close.

As a Vietnam Veteran, I was very moved and impressed by this memorial. It honors our veterans and keeps alive the memory of those that have given their all for our country. It is a must see for everyone. If you are within a hundred miles, go see it.

The memorial is clearly a labor of love as it is meticulously maintained and moving. There are found with a lovely memorial garden, a UH1 Huey, markers commemorating veterans, a chapel, gift shop. The whole thing is much more elaborate than you might be inclined to believe. In additional to the memorial the views from this hill overlooking the valley... More

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial is a must stop if you are in the Angel Fire area. The memorial is just north of town on Hwy 64 atop a scenic hill. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with flowers and trees. There are quite a number of artifacts to explore and many photos to view. In the back there is also an... More

The memorial sits high on a hill between Angel Fire and Eagle's Nest. The building itself is lovely. It includes a chapel, garden, museum and gift shop. It is very quiet up on the hillside lending a peaceful feeling to the grounds. The museum is small but has some nice artifacts and information about the Vietnam War. The story behind... More

Amazing views from an amazing place. The whole concept of this place and the planned cemetery as well was awe inspiring. Take time out to watch the movie but hold a box of tissues when you do. The stories they told in the movie brought me to tears. I would go back again in a heartbeat. Out in the middle... More

Found this museum in handout from the travel bureau in Taos, N.M. From Taos the drive to this location is almost 2 hours through very interesting terrain. This museum is off the road and easy to find. You are on a high ridge over looking a valley as you go into the museum. All the exhibits are labeled so well... More
