Vietnam Memorial Garden
The third garden on the museum site, the Vietnam Memorial Garden, was opened to the public on May 30, 2009, with an Unveiling Ceremony attended
by over 2000 people. The centerpiece is a 300-foot long, 1/2 scale replica of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C.
The new memorial wall is permanent and unique, in that the wall will be updated annually
to ensure everything on the wall is accurate and up to date with the memorial in Washington, D. C.
Surrounding the Vietnam Memorial Wall replica, on three sides, is a small forest of Arizona Cypress trees. The wall is accessed by a path of decomposed granite.
The new garden cost was estimated at $175,000. Fundraising continues to support additions to the garden and maintenance and upgrades to the memorial wall. Contributions may be made online using the Gift Shop Order Form
or may be mailed to the museum at the address shown on the
The garden also contains memorials in the form of bricks, tablets and monuments placed there by individuals and organizations wishing to honor the memory of a loved one
or members of an organization. Memorials can still be placed in the garden. Please contact us for complete
