National Veterans Memorial and Museum (NVMM)

There are more than 20 million living veterans throughout the United States, from our Greatest Generation to our recent heroes coming home from Afghanistan and Iraq.

And yet, there is no single monument or museum dedicated to the Veteran’s experience. There are institutions that focus on specific conflicts or branches of service, but there hasn’t been a place for us all to join together to celebrate and honor the sacrifice of all of our veterans, past and present…until now.

The National Veterans Memorial and Museum, officially designated by the Federal Government, will officially open on Saturday, October 27, 2018.

National Veterans Memorial and Museum to Open October 27 

On Saturday, October 27, 2018 from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. the National Veterans Memorial and Museum will host a dedication and grand opening ceremony. The ceremony will feature distinguished veterans whose stories are highlighted in the museum, military leadership and appearances or performances by men and women of the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard and Reserves. General Colin Powell (U.S. Army, Retired) will deliver the keynote address. The public is encouraged to attend the dedication to celebrate the opening of this historic institution.

The museum, located at 300 W. Broad Street, Columbus, OH 43215, will open immediately after the dedication and will remain open until 9 p.m. that evening to allow as many guests as possible to experience the exhibits.

Please RSVP for the Dedication and Grand Opening Ceremonies at www.nationalvmm.org/grandopening/.
