My husband and I walked through this memorial on a day when we were visiting the Milwaukee Art Museum. There are different representations for different branches of the services which is good. The backdrop of Lake Michigan really makes this memorial special.

Good for a quick stop. One note is that right now there's a lot of construction happening, which led to confusion such as a staircase being open from the lakeside but the actual courtyard with the eternal flame being locked off, which was irritating. It's...More

The memorial is a heart-felt tribute to veterans of numerous wars. It is not particularly different from memorials in other cities. The posters on the 3rd and 4th floors were fascinating and made the visit memorable for me.
