We had no idea this veteran memorial was here. Happened to be driving by enroute to another stop. So glad we stopped and explored the area. The eternal flame burns on.... a must see in the area.

WE were here with 15 other people to eat and watch the fireworks. This place is amazing with an unbelievable view. Lots of displays to see. It is worth it just for the view.

I was there for a Veteran Hiring Event. The place was crowded with employers and Veterans but I could see a lot of displays and other items honoring our Veterans. I will go back to see the rest.

The War Memorial Center is truly beautiful and unique. The building is located on Milwaukee's lakefront and has this incredible view. But the architecture is amazing. It reminds me of the 60's. The art displayed is so worth the visit.

Eternal flame, floor with war dates, locations and reminders for all to contemplate. Outside the huge water-saving gardens invite thoughtfulness as do numerous benches from which Lake Michigan is seen. It is free!
