Education & learning

At Veterans Memorial Park

Pensacola, FL



I cannot remember every book I've read any more than every meal I've eaten; even so, they have made me.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

For the past 30 years, Veterans Memorial Park has been honoring the heroes who sacrificed everything for the freedoms that we enjoy. It is a place of repose and reflection, as well as one of learning. The Park contains 12 world-class monuments to the heroes of all our major wars since our nation’s beginning, providing our youth an opportunity to connect with those heroes and their experiences. A tour of the Park provides an unforgettable lesson in American history, civics, or art.

Education Partnerships

As a fixture in the local and Veteran communities, we strive to be an invaluable resource for students and educators.
