Have lived in Richmond for over 50 years and never been to the War Memorial. It is a place where you can review history and if you have relatives that participated in some of our nations conflicts maybe even see the part they played.

We did a very quick tour of this museum on our last day in Richmond. It was beautifully done. A nice tribute to those who gave their lives.

One of them is 96 years old and still volunteer on Wednesdays. I wish I could have heard his story. The veterans that were here can tell you... More

Loved it!! The staff are very friendly and explain everything to you! So much to learn and see here! Definitely a place to take your older kids to as they can appreciate the learning experience versus taking younger children who might not retain the info. Awesome place!

Your kids (and older ones too) need to visit here. Many displays, information, static & multi-media along with the Memorial portion. There's way more to this site than meets the eye. Let your kids know more about the price paid so they could live here in the land of the free (paid for by the brave). Wish more older folks... More

A very beautiful and solemn memorial to the fallen war dead of Virginia. Excellent done displays from the various American war's, Wall panels with every single Virginian killed during fighting. Thed grounds are well kept and scenic. You need to see this to appreciate it's beauty. Visit it when in Richmond

Went here for son's Boy Scout merit badge class. While he was doing that, i wondered about. There is a fair amount of "stuff", but I had to remember that this place is a memorial, so it made sense. There is a war museum in Newport News VA that has a lot more ":stuff", but not the feeling of a... More

America's fight for freedom is on display at this memorial to Virginia's fallen. The setting, on a bluff overlooking downtown and the James, is a sight to behold. This two-story museum has wonderful displays and attractions. Into Battle, a powerful cinematic experience; Arms for the Nation, uniforms and military hardware on display (with life-like models) - AMAZING! Not to be... More
