The Wall That Heals is a three-quarter scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. The trailer that transports the exhibit opens up to become a mobile Education Center that displays items representative of those left at The Wall in Washington, D.C. Digital displays include photos of local service members whose names are on The Wall and local veterans honored through the In Memory program. Honor the more than 58,000 service members who made the ultimate sacrifice during the Vietnam War by visiting The Wall That Heals while it is in town. Open to the public 24 hours a day.

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.
