The National Veterans Memorial and Museum is the United States' national museum for veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces. The museum is located in Columbus, Ohio.
The site along the west side of the Scioto River near the Discovery Bridge on Broad Street was originally home to the Franklin County Veterans Memorial, which originally opened in 1955 and was demolished to make way for the museum in early 2015.
It was dedicated on October 27, 2018, with a speech by former general Colin Powell.
The museum focuses on the stories of veterans and individuals rather than military accomplishments, with the mission to "honor, inspire, connect, and educate".
