A national monument, museum, and education center to honor the women who have defended the country in the past, present, and future, from the American Revolution to current day service. The monument was designed by the architect Marion Gail Weiss.
The visit starts at the Hemicycle – the gateway to Arlington National Cemetery and continues to the main gallery, where one can explore the displays about the women serving in the armed forces.
At the Hall of Fame, visitors learn about the women who were taken as war prisoners, killed in the line of duty, and earned high honors for their service or bravery. There are documentary films about the various roles of women in the U.S armed forces, with personal stories and items from their time in the service, including artifacts, photographs, documents, and uniforms throughout the years.
The museum hosts permanent and special exhibits, as well as special events such as Veteran’s Day activities and ‘Book Launch Event’.
Finish your tour at the rooftop terrace, where you can see the Memorial Bridge and other monuments in the area.
