The historic war memorials at the Buffalo & Erie County Naval & Military Park’s Monuments Garden honors several lifetimes of service in the U.S. Armed Forces. In addition to educating the pubic with our artifacts, our mission includes honoring and remembering Veterans. One of the ways we strive to do this is through our Monuments Garden.

Located in our green oasis along the waterfront, the Monuments Garden is home to many monuments, including the Iraq-Afghanistan Monument, Vietnam Memorial, Purple Heart Memorial, The Battle Within PTSD Monument, Hispanic and Latino Memorial, and the soon to be constructed Memorial to African Americans who served in every conflict in our country’s history, a first in the United States. This space can serve as a quiet place for remembrance and reflection before or after touring our museum and ships.
