Donation Policy

The Virginia War Memorial is fortunate to have friends and supporters who offer books and personal artifacts for use at the museum and in the collection. Our staff is happy to discuss any potential donations with you or set up an appointment for artifact review/appraisal.

The Virginia War Memorial is primarily looking for military objects owned by Virginians or related to Virginian history, including uniforms, weaponry, correspondence, journals, and personal artifacts.

To set up an appointment for review or to speak with the Curator, please call 804.786.2060.
