Wonderful exhibits highlight the service of America's Women in the military! Also a bathroom and water fountain inside and a small gift shop. Get a nice priced and sized Iwo Jima statue here! More people should go inside and see what's there.

This memorial is a testament to women who have given their lives to the United States from the Revolution War to present day. As a woman, it was emotional to read the stories of the women whose service was ignored by our government for year, especially those who paid their way home after their service. Side note, this was the... More

A rather small, but nevertheless interesting memorial to women's role in the military. Mostly ignored by hordes of tourists. In my opinion, you should visit it even if you don't care about its contents. It offers a nice ACed environment to cool down after roaming the cemetery on a hot summer day.

One of the first memorials that you will see when traveling the tour-mobile. Short walk from the visitors center

Unfortunately many Arlington tourists/visitors overlook this wonderful tribute. Consider taking time from your day to learn about these patriotic women. You'll learn more than you thought you would, I'm certain. RIP Specialist Nicole Frye, KIA, Feb, 2004, Iraq. From Lena, WI.

Very cool old pictures from world war 2, all the old uniforms. Worth stopping in at if you're in Arlington Cemetery.

This is off to the right from the main administration building where you buy tickets. We (my wife and our two boys, 16 and 18) only stopped in for few minutes as we were short on time but we would spend more time next time we visit. Lots of information, some excellent history and well presented (exhibits, film clips, artifacts,... More

Women have played an essential part in every war. You'll discover the roles and contributions they've made at this museum. The architecture is beautiful! An informative way to end your trip to the Arlington National Cemetery. Restrooms are located in this building. There is no parking in from of the museum, but available at the parking lot for the Arlington... More
