The Virginia War Memorial Education Department harnesses the power of storytelling, artifacts, and firsthand accounts to bring centuries of Virginians’ history to life. Programs are designed to educate and enrich learners of all ages and experiences, and there is something at the Virginia War Memorial for everyone! We are always working to develop and expand our programs and events for K-12 students and teachers, families and children, adult learners, and beyond. Our unique events often feature veterans, historians, artifacts, uniforms, documents, and so much more spanning from the American Revolution to the present.
