What People are Saying

A stellar experience

“Knowledgeable staff, and a powerful reminder of the contributions of women in the military. Ask a docent for a tour, the stories are amazing!

A must see when visiting Arlington

As a Veteran of the US Army, I am super impressed with this memorial. The exhibits are extensive and creative, and the building itself is just incredible. It is a testament to those of us who served and sacrificed.

Teresa R.

Amazing place and my experience left me speechless.

The site is very well maintained. It provides a great visual for those that just don’t know about us and it also provides a home for all of us that might have no where else to call home in the male-dominate environment..

What an amazing gem tucked into Arlington.

I literally walked into this by accident when we were exploring the area around Arlington. Do not miss this if you are taking time to reflect.
