“Sunset at the Memorial”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

We came to Richmond to do photography. This is a nice memorial, easy to get to, with good parking. We also walked out on the bridge to get pictures over the James River. Unfortunately the sunset was nothing special that day, but you can't blame the memorial for that!

“Richmond's Best Kept Secret”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2013

Fantastic resource for learning about and honoring our country's military veterans. I was amazed at the quality of the exhibits and breadth of things to do and see there. You have to visit the onsite theater where they show a 16 minute film complete with real falling snow. It truly makes you feel as if you were there. For both young and old alike, you'll want to come back to the Virginia War Memorial.

“Frozen Poetry on the James”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2013

One of the best views of the James and downtown Richmond can be found at the Virginia War Memorial. Built to honor those who have served, the building is a study in understated classical moderne architecture with a brilliant new addition by Glave & Holmes Architecture.
