I took my brother, an Air Force veteran, to this memorial and he was in awe. The wall itself is huge but it's not so much the memorial itself, as it is the presentation. You find yourself sitting there, reflecting on these names on this wall, who all gave the ultimate sacrifice for this country. I was overwhelmed with the... More

Visited here with my brother on a weekday morning. It is very well kept and quite impressive - beginning with the memorial wall outside. It is particularly informative in that soldiers names are listed by county. We were extremely blessed to have as our guide a WWII veteran! He was very and pleasant informative,and of course his knowledge of WWII... More

This was a moving tribute to all of the Virginians who were killed in action in the past couple of wars. The names on the walls by county shows what a sacrifice Virginians made. We went there on a quiet Sunday morning and it was peaceful. Its a beautiful view overlooking the James River and the skyscrapers of Richmond.

Great presentation of the major wars complete with falling 'snow'. The displays were very interesting and the staff helpful and courteous. Not a war buff myself but I truly enjoyed our visit.

Located conveniently in downtown Richmond, this magnificent memorial serves multiple purposes. As a memorial, it honors the Virginians who gave the ultimate sacrifice. As an educational museum, it provides history and classrooms that can be reserved. It also can be used for meetings and gatherings. It belongs to you.....the public. Use it!

We have driven by this memorial many times and this week we decided to stop by. We were very impressed with how well it is maintained, the friendly and knowledgeable staff members and the impressive views of the city. Great place to spend a few hours walking around looking/reading about the ones who sacrificed their lives for our freedom.

It's a wonderful stroll through the shrine, recognizing those Virginian's lost in battles. There are more than 11,000 folks memorialized...
