National Veterans Memorial & Museum
The National Veterans Memorial and Museum (NVMM) is a new, soon-to-open cultural complex representing a national initiative of profound importance for our nation’s 20+ million living veterans. Until now, there has been no single monument or museum dedicated to the veteran’s experience in the United States. With 30,000 square feet available for exhibit space, this new institution will celebrate both the service and honor the sacrifice of all veterans and their myriad contributions to American society. Envisioned by the late Senator John Glenn (1921-2016), Colonel, USMC (Retired), as a gathering place for veterans across the country, the museum is scheduled to open to the public in fall 2018. NVMM will present the veteran experience through the lens of personal stories and life-changing experiences from which visitors will be inspired to learn more about our country’s history and actively engage in their own communities as informed citizens.
