Water Effects Hours of Operation:

During certain winter months, (primarily December, January, February, and the first half of March), the Memorial's invasion tableau is drained for seasonal system maintenance.  If you wish to see the invasion pool with water, it is recommended you visit late March thru November.  To determine whether or not the pool is operating, you can also call 540-587-3619.  **As of November 21, 2016, the water effects are currently down.  We expect them to be back in operation in March.
