Good video explaining why Veterans serve to protect our freedoms. Free to the public. Volunteers are very friendly and eager to share information. One is a veteran that had to crawl out onto the tail wing of a WWII bomber to bail out.

Truly awe inspiring. Even in the city there is such a sense calm, respect and reverence for those, that this memorial is dedicated to.

Much more than we expected. If you are into military items, they have a fantastic collection of uniforms and weapons from all eras. Definitely worth the stop.

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.
