The Heart of Our Mission

Preserving Her Story

We are the leading memorial and education center honoring women’s contributions to the service of our nation.   

As the only historical repository documenting all military women’s service, we educate and inspire through innovative and interactive exhibitions, our world-class collections, and engaging programs and events for all generations. We honor the commitment, contributions and experiences of every woman who serves in, or with, the Armed Forces. 



From November 2021 – May 2022, the Military Womens Memorial will be closed while undergoing renovations to update and improve our visitor experience.

Our Gift Shop has moved to the Fort Belvoir Exchange! Visit us there while we are closed or shop with us online at www.giftshop.womensmemorial.org

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.
