This memorial sets on a hill with the city as it's background. Seeing the names from each county/city in Virginia that gave their life for my freedom was really amazing. Also, inside the memorial there are great pieces of history regarding all of the wars. Also see the picture of every person from Virginia that has died in Afghanistan &... More

This is another of my favorite places in Richmond. The glass and stones have names of Virginia's fallen veterans etched in them, along with the county/city they were from. There is a statue, "Memory," at the south end of the memorial. She shows both the great sorrow and pride for our fallen soldiers. She stands by a reflecting pool and... More

This is a wonderful exhibit in Richmond...everyone should check it out. A little known place but it packs a lot of information. You should go there with the intent of taking a slow stroll through it all and definitely watch the movie.

This is well worth browsing around. It is very informative and really makes you think about what Americans sacrifice every day for our freedom.

This is worth a visit in Richmond. Very nice, clean facility with a lot of history. The one comment I do have is although they are keeping up on the grounds, I wish they would have kept up with the ware memorial itself. It has not completed the Gulf War and it would be nice if that was expanded to... More

I was just looking at the names of the dead and the places of battle when a friendly guide, Wilton, popped up,and explained some facts about the monument and what was included in the centre itself. Thank you, it really brought the history itself to life, and I found out some details of the site as well. And thanks for... More

I did not expect to see such a wonderful st of monuments and some fantastic homes, The city is very proud of these people to whom the monuments are dedicated and justifiably so. Well done.

I would recommend visiting this memorial once during day time and once during evening/night time. I visited this more than an year back and had no trouble finding parking. But I was going thru their website today and it looks like that parking now is inadequate and they have planned to create an underground parking for which construction is starting... More
