Exhibits include a VR experience, uniforms, weapons, and an extensive gallery of photos. The grounds include a 32,000-square-foot (3,000 m2) facility across a glass bridge above a field of 9,000 red poppies, each representing 1,000 combatant deaths as well as the eye-catching 217-foot-tall memorial tower.
