Artifacts Road Show
Whether it’s an old uniform cap or helmet, a box of medals and ribbons, a flag, sword, or a canteen - every piece of military memorabilia has a story to tell. Anyone who would like to learn more about a military-related item that’s been passed down in his or her family, was discovered in the attic or found at a yard sale, is invited to bring it in a for free expert review at the Virginia War Memorial’s Artifacts Roadshow in the Memorial’s Paul and Phyllis Galanti Education Center. Virginia War Memorial Curator Jesse Smith and noted military memorabilia expert Robert House of Virginia Beach will again be on hand to personally review and offer their insights on the original and history of military items from any historical era – from the Revolutionary War until today. Admission to the Artifacts Roadshow is free as are reviews. Donations to the non-profit Virginia War Memorial Foundation are appreciated. Parking is also free at the Memorial, located at 621 South Belvidere Street in Richmond.
