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.
Depicting The Invisible: A Portrait Series of Veterans Suffering From PTSD by artist Susan J. Barron debuts at the museum on April 3. Barron was inspired to create the portrait series based on the fact that 22 Veterans commit suicide every day in our country.
“My intention is to bring awareness to the issues of PTSD and to depict our Veterans as the incredible heroes they are,” said Barron. “… My mission is to provide a platform for Veterans to share their stories, and to create a vehicle for help and change.”

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.
