MNVM Welcome Center, museum closed through Dec. 3


Out of what director Nancy Guth described as “an abundance of caution,” Missouri’s National Veterans Memorial last week announced some changes to its daily operations.

“Due to the Perry County Health Department's change in level of alert and an abundance of caution for our veterans, volunteers and staff, Missouri's National Veterans Memorial's Welcome Center and Museum will be closed effective immediately until at least Dec. 3, 2020, or until these precautions aren't needed,” Guth said.

The announcement, which came in a news release issued last week, stated that all ongoing programs, Wreaths Across America, Adopt-a-Veteran and naming opportunities would still be conducted.

“The MNVM grounds will continue to be open 24/7 in keeping with our mission to provide an environment of peace and reflection for all who visit,” Guth said. “Materials and information about the memorial and its monuments will be provided outside the Welcome Center.”

The statement urged anyone with questions to contact MNVM staff by phone at 573-547-2035 or by email at

“We look forward to seeing you again soon and hope you will continue to follow us on our Facebook page @AmericasWall, and our website,,” Guth said.
