Spring 2021 COVID-19 UPDATE: The Memorial buildings are open to the public and no reservations are required. Guests will need to wear face coverings and adhere to social distancing protocols. Our top priority at the Virginia War Memorial is the health and safety of our visitors, volunteers, and staff.
Through the stories of those who served, the nation’s leading state War Memorial honors Virginia’s fallen and preserves the past. In the process of helping veterans find their voice and collecting and telling their stories, the Memorial also educates and inspires for the future.
Take a moving, reflective walk through the heart of the Memorial: the Shrine of Memory.
Engage directly with history through veteran-led tours, educational programs for all ages, as well as artifacts, photographs, films, oral histories, and the arts.
As we collectively try to navigate the new Stay-at-Home orders, the Virginia War Memorial Foundation has a number of online resources available online for you and your family.
