What a beautiful state memorial! The uniform displays on the upper level are amazingly displayed. The trophy case on the lower level was also a pleasure to view.

Just a great spot to marvel at all the names of Virginians who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom. Worth the stop if in downtown Richmond!
