Plan A Visit

We invite veterans, current service men and women and those of all ages to visit our grounds. All features are wheelchair accessible.

Missouri’s National Veterans Memorial is a wonderful location to bring your family for a day trip. Educate your loved ones about the deep impact of America’s conflicts and the necessity of supporting America’s warriors.

Our campus includes:

  • The Wall is a permanent full-scale black granite model of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial identical to that in Washington, D.C.
  • The Honor Flag Memorial is a large, concave structure, stretching 49-feet along the Welcome Center’s southern edge
  • The Guardians of Freedom Monument is dedicated to all United States military special operations.
  • A Welcome Center fully insulated from the elements
  • Indoor Miltary Museum (phase one just completed!)
  • Scenic views and a gorgeous clear skyline
  • Plenty of parking
  • And more to come


  • There is no entry fee.
  • If you have the means, we request a $10 donation per person. This helps ensure upkeep and grow the Memorial.
  • Parking is free.
