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

The exhibits are outstanding and informative!!! The staff/volunteers were very knowledgeable and patiently answered every question my 8 year old nephew asked!!! I've lived in this area for many years and can't believe what a gem I had right under my nose!!!

A multi-war memorial, not just to the Confederacy but to all uniformed Virginians who have given their lives up to the latest victims of war

This is a very well done memorial, to the armed forces. It is not a monument to war but rather a good explanation of several different war events, WWI, WWII, Korean Conflict, Viet Nam and the Desert Storm, complete with movie that was very well done.

For some, this edifice of remembrance might have a special meaning, and should not be readily discounted in that event. Otherwise it is not a destination to be recommended, as one would Arlington. On the "plus side", there are great river views from there. Go down to Tredegar instead.

Always a place to take anyone from out of town. A very moving experience reading the names of the fallen. There is also a fabulous view of the Richmond downtown skyline.

I wasn't aware of the expanded exhibits at the VA War Memorial. It's an excellent historical recounting of VA's participation in US conflicts and rivals DC for free public venues. It's worth at least a hour's visit.

It was WAY more than a listing of Virginians who served in WW2, Korea, Vietnam, and the Persian Gulf. It had beautiful displays following the time line of not only wars, but all important American important dates -- wars, movies, historical events, etc -- down to the invention of Juicy Fruit gum ;-) The docent told us about the videos...
