The memorial is a heart-felt tribute to veterans of numerous wars. It is not particularly different from memorials in other cities. The posters on the 3rd and 4th floors were fascinating and made the visit memorable for me.

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.
