Visitors are invited to explore the Visitor’s Center free of charge.
Since 1996, the Visitor’s Center has served as the welcoming venue for veterans and their loved ones.
This was ‘ground zero’… the beginning of the New Mexico Veterans’ Memorial. Armed with gold shovels, Community leaders, Heather Wilson and Mayor Marty Chavez along with base officials, officially broke ground on this spot in 1996.
Initially the building was completed only to the stained glass artwork visible high on the west wall of the front room. The artwork was created by a west coast artist and was donated to the Memorial in her father’s memory who was an Air Force veteran.
Today, the Visitor's Center is staffed by volunteers from a variety of military organizations and one paid staff member from the City of Albuquerque Senior Affairs office. The volunteer ‘Greeters’ are available 9am to 3pm, daily. Beyond those hours, the city employee is available to answer your telephone calls 8am to 5pm, Monday through Friday.
Open 9am to 3pm, daily.
Admission is free.
