Honoring all who served: the National Veterans Memorial and Museum

Standing tall on the Columbus, Ohio riverfront is the National Veterans Memorial and Museum (NVMM). Unlike traditional war memorials, the NVMM honors veterans from all eras and branches of the U.S. Armed Forces.

This isn’t just a collection of military artifacts – it’s a powerful, personal journey. Through photos, letters, and multimedia exhibits, visitors connect with the stories of individual veterans, from their decision to serve to their experiences in uniform and beyond.

The sprawling seven-acre site offers an open-air amphitheater, a memorial grove for reflection, and a rooftop sanctuary.
