The look of the Memorial is all Northern New Mexico but the interior is all about our vets who gave so much. The garden and waterfall are so peaceful and serene. A beautiful place to contemplate all that our vets sacrificed for us. The inside is quite extensive. I wore a POW/MIA bracelet as a kid that meant quite a... More

As others have said, this memorial speaks to the sacrifices of those who served in Vietnam, and all wars. With each exhibit, you can almost feel the laments of the families who lost so much, as well as the turmoil of a nation at odds. A great reminder about the costs of war, and the importance of remembering our soldiers... More

I'm glad you got so much out of your visit. We strive to make this memorial not just about the ones we lost but the war's effect on everyone it touched. More

What an amazing tribute and memorial to the men and women who served in the Vietnam War and those that made the ultimate sacrifice. Exhibits on the grounds and in the Visitor Center honor these veterans. The items on display drive home the impact that this war had on our country and the struggles soldiers and their families had during... More

This was my first visit but my travel companion had been there several years ago. He kept commenting on how much it's grown and how incredible the displays are. It was very good before - good enough to go back - but SO much better now in his opinion. With a son who served three tours in Iraq, it really... More

I travel often through Northern New Mexico and I stop here every time I drive by. I like the feeling it gives me when I remember all the veterans that have served our country when visiting this monument.

I can't write a lot more than others have shared about this magnificent memorial and tribute to those who served and lost their lives during this controversial conflict. We were just expecting a monument, but were pleasantly surprised by a ultra-modern and comprehensive museum down below. This place is out of the way, but very, very worthwhile, so if you... More

The Angel Fire Vietnam Veterans Memorial is a poignant and informative tribute to our armed services personnel. Whatever your feelings about conflict, this memorial brings home the human component and sacrifices paid by our soldiers and by their families. The grounds are in one of the most beautiful settings we have ever seen. There are displays outside and within the... More

This was built by a father to honor his Marine son killed in Viet Nam in 1968. He sold land he owned to start the project. It also, honors his son's company and all Viet Nam Vets. Has a chapel and museum. It is now run by the state of New Mexico. Is as impressive as the "Wall" in DC... More
