Throughout the year, the National Veterans Memorial and Museum schedules events that honor and celebrate the contributions of our nation’s Veterans. This calendar can help you plan your visit around a holiday or other special event.
Run to honor America’s Veterans and active military during Veteran’s Day weekend. The event features a 5-mile course, each mile representing one of the service branches, an urban course through the streets of downtown Columbus and an exciting finish on top of the National Veterans Memorial and Museum. A portion of all proceeds will support the mission of the National Veterans Memorial and Museum. Please visit the link to register and learn more.
Honor Veterans with the National Veterans Memorial and Museum as we welcome the 35th Vice Chief of Staff of the United States Army, General Daniel B. Allyn, (Retired). General Allyn’s distinguished, nearly 36-year long career included tours in Korea, Grenada, Egypt, Panama, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iraq, and Afghanistan. His life of service will set the tone as we reflect on the importance of the commitment and sacrifice made by our nation’s Veterans. The event is free, but registration is required. *Museum admission not included
The National Veterans Memorial and Museum welcomes groups of 10 or more for both guided tours and self-guided visits with a discounted admission rate, a dedicated entrance, and other group privileges. Reservations are required and should be made at least four weeks in advance. To inquire about a group visit, please complete the online request form.
Directly adjacent to the Museum lies a 2.5 acre Memorial Grove, designed for contemplation and reflection before vistors return to their everyday lives. Anchored by a grove of elm trees, the space features a 325-foot stone wall, with three cascades of water and a reflecting pool lining the basin, creating a cohesive space for remembrance, inspiration and the recognition of service.
Recognized internationally for its innovative design, the National Veterans Memorial and Museum offers a truly unique venue for a variety of occasions and special events. From the Great Hall, with its stunning views of the Columbus skyline, to the rooftop terrace, our spaces make events memorable. Meeting rooms on the lower level can accommodate groups of up to 180, and catering services are available.
