Extended hours from April through September, open from 8am to 7pm daily.
If you would like a tour of the memorial, please in advance of your visit by two weeks.
This memorial, dedicated in October 1997, was built to honor all women who have served in, and with, the military. The education center and 196-seat theater portray the history of women in the armed forces beginning more than 220 years ago.
Chidren may be surprised to learn that women played important roles in war as far back as the Revolution. The Hall of Honor recognizes women who have made a significant sacrifice, such as those who were prisoners of war or died in service, and those who were recipients of the highest awards for service and bravery. The Computer Registry makes it possible to locate and view the records of friends and relatives who were, or are, servicewomen.
The memorial’s Just 4 Kids programs, which include Hunt Through History (a scavenger hunt), Loose Lips Sink Ships (code breaking), and Sound Off (drill and Double Dutch jump rope), are very popular. Check out the scheule on the Web site, and note that kids need to be registered a week in advance. A minimal fee is required.
