  • This museum has so much to offer but many folks simply bypass the beautiful sculpture and never venture in. They are working on a large-scale expansion including a much needed parking lot, but you may use the VHDA parking lot and walk over. Known for its haunting sculpture which has a backdrop of the name of veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice in the many conflicts of our country's short history, it is also a great resource and a great place for reflection.
  • This is a really neat memorial with a theater and museum. It's free, so don't forget to donate using the box at the entrance. The wax figures in the glass casings are perfection - you can even see the dirt under their nails. Great job to the artist. So lifelike. If you're out and about near the river, take a half hour or 20 minutes to stop in. The whole memorial is beautifully done.
