Welcome to the Virginia War Memorial & Foundation. Completed on February 29, 1956, the Memorial is the Commonwealth of Virginia’s premier monument, museum, and educational center honoring all Virginians who demonstrated a willingness to serve and defend the United States from World War II through today.

Through educational programs, community outreach, documentary films, and patriotic events and exhibits, the Virginia War Memorial preserves, interprets, and shares with the public and scholars the firsthand experiences of those who served and their families on the homefront.
