Beautiful tribute to our servicemen.

This is one of the finest Veterans' Memorials we've ever seen. Very well done. When you visit the capitol you won't want to miss this. A must for every American.

Excellent memorial to both the men and woman who have served from West Virginia. Well worth some time on the way through the campus to the State Museum/Cultural center.

Nothing gives me chills more than seeing them men and women who gave their life for our freedom. As a veteran, I believe this memorial is in great shape and even underwent maitnance to keep it looking great not too long ago. If I ever go to the Capitol, I always stop by just to take a gander. Thank you... More

The Memorial is interesting and involves all of the wars from the 1900s. It wasn't huge, but it was definitely compelling and humbling. The names of those who gave all are listed.

Though not a veteran myself one feels humbled by the number of WV veterans that served and died. This memorial which is in the capitol complex, which in itself is worth the effort to see, is a beautiful memorial. I think those that served will feel special pride in knowing the state recognizes their efforts and sacrifices.

This is a great way to honor the Veterans of West Virginia. There are free parking spots for those who want to visit the memorial which I think is a nice touch. We visited both during the day and at night, it’s all light up at night and even more peaceful. It’s a great spot to sit and reflect on... More

This is a nice place to go around but don't follow de map on trip advisor to get there this is totally wrong. I tried to follow the gps on the apps and I ended on the country side of Charleston. This is behind the estate Capitol. Downtown.

The Veterans Memorial is beautiful! We visited during the day, but it looks as though there are lights that shine on the statues at night. Definitely worth the stop while at the Capitol.

It's a powerful experience to see so many names of fallen soldiers engraved in the marble of this monument. During my visit, the monument was being renovated--and the orange power cords, ladders and empty pools definitely took away from my experience. There are a few free, non-metered parking spots very close to the space for visitors of the monument. Otherwise... More
