Virginia War Museum

Virginia War Museum

This museum covers all of U.S. military history, including the roles of women and African-Americans.

American military history from 1775 to the present is highlighted through weapons, vehicles, uniforms, insignia and much more. Visitors can see a section of the Berlin Wall and a portion of the outer wall from Dachau Concentration Camp. Galleries on display on the museum include "Women at War" and "Marches Toward Freedom", exploring the roles of women and African-Americans in the military, and "Visions of War", the Museum's outstanding propaganda poster collection.

We hope you enjoy our work.
