If you’re visiting the Shrine on the weekend, there is a small museum filled with military mementos. It’s attached to the low, single-story house that fronts the property. Inside the museum you’ll find uniforms, medals, trunks, and other conflict memorabilia that span the twentieth and twenty-first century of American military history.The Veteran’s Memorial National Shrine is an interesting mix of picnic space, memory grounds and museum material. If you want a good place with lots of people room, the picnic grounds are great. If you want something to keep the kids happy, bring along a ball and some hula-hoops – the swing set will be a hit, too. And if you want something for folks to think about, then check out the museum. While the Shrine grounds are open all summer, you might want to call ahead to reserve the picnic space. Catching one of the custodians on the phone is a little tricky, so your best bet is to make the call on the weekend, near noon. Click here for the address and contact information for the Shrine.
