This artifact is believed to be a bumper off of one of the first response vehicles from Ground Zero of the 9/11 attacks.

It was brought to the @virginiawarmuseum 5 years ago.

The museum is offering free admission tomorrow. Next to this artifact will be a memorial ledger where visitors can share their experiences and memories of the event.

Sometimes in the moment, you don’t take any photos. This museum was fascinating.

So many artifacts that were donated, over 60,000. Military uniforms from many different countries, a section of the Dachua Fence, a section of the Berlin Wall, original copy of Mein Kampf, just to name a few artifacts. This museum will surprise you. Don’t skip this one. The Virginia War Museum was founded in 1923 by Braxton-Perkins Post #25 as the American Legion Museum. The veterans from World War I provided many of the artifacts for the early collection. The original collection was eventually expanded to encompass artifacts from World War II, Korean War and the Vietnam War. Without donations from the private citizens the Virginia War Museum would not exist. #museum #virginiawarmuseum #artifacts #militaryuniforms #dontskipthis

😸Daryl and Naoru had a pretty awesome #Caturday - now that we are stationed in Norfolk we can take the opportunity to visit all the cool museums around!



Today we went to the Virginia War Museum @virginiawarmuseum which is a SUPER impressive museum that houses over 60,000 original war artifacts from around the globe spanning from the American Revolution to present time. Unbelievably cool and educational.

Daryl and Naoru were super excited to see some of the larger pieces of artillery and tanks outside; we didn’t get a chance to take them to every single one (there are A LOT), but they enjoyed these! 💥⚡️🔥

If you are ever in the Tidewater region, definitely check out the place!

Here are pictures last night’s Virginia Veterans Memorial, Inc. Meeting at The Virignia War Museum!



Before discussing the updates to the Iraq War Memorial and Armed Forces Gazebo, American Legion Braxton-Perkins Auxiliary Unit 25 President Terry Tranbarger Devlin presented donation to the group. The Unit gave a $1,000 donation for production of Iraq War Memorial.

Following the donation presentation and updates, the attendees went outside to see the future locations of both Iraq Memorial Monument and Armed Forces Gazebo. The future site of the Iraq War monument is near the Vietnam War monument. #AmericanLegionAuxiliary #3rddistrictva #alpost25va #alaunit25va #virginiaveteransmemorialinc #virginiawarmuseum #newportnewsva #vaauxiliary #valegion #americanlegion

This #memorialday I want to express my gratitude for those who are serving and have served our country.

4 years ago, we visited the #VirginiaWarMuseum.

For Memorial Day: a United States Army jeep at the Virginia War Museum in Hampton.
