I drove by the Maryland WWII Memorial several times before I decided to stop. It’s very easy to find due to well placed signs that direct you to its location. The parking lot is small, but it is enough to accommodate the typical number of...More

This memorial is a perfect place to ride bikes to, next to the GOLD Star family memorial. The ride is over the Naval Academy bridge and has great views back onto the Naval Academy as well as visiting both memorials.

This memorial seemed easy to get to. I was not driving but could easily see the signs. There is a wonderful view overlooking the harbor from this peaceful memorial. Just drive to the top of the hill right behind the memorial and there is parking.

This memorial is well done and tells the story of our World War II heroes. And the view is outstanding. It is a great place to reflect and pray for our country.

This memorial had been updated over the years. The setting is beautiful and the monument is tastefully done. And the view of the Naval Academy across the Severn River is the best in the area. If one is passing by it is worth the stop....More

Nice spot to briefly get away from the crowds and take a minute to think about what really matters. Very nice view from the overlook

The memorial has a really good vantage point to see the Naval Academy and the Severn River area. As a historic site, it's a smallish monument to those who gave their lives for our country. Worth the time.

I stumbled across this while looking for a gas station. My husband and I returned there and were so glad we did. It's a small place and took less that 15 minutes to enjoy but it was worth it. The view of the Naval Academy...More

As stated above, this is a monument area with a wonderful view, but no museum, The WWII Museum in New Orleans is a good suggestion- you can probably contact them on-line and ask about donating your dad's "stuff".
