Video sneak peek of Veterans Memorial, Museum Director named

One of the most anticipated buildings in the United States is slated to open this fall on the downtown riverfront.

The National Veterans Memorial and Museum is slated to open this fall and today, they’ve given us this sneak peek video to satisfy our curiosity.

Veterans Memorial has also named its Museum Director, Samir Bitar.


Bitar has more than 10 years of experience in museum management including time as the Director of Visitor Experience for the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC.

In addition to his professional qualifications, Bitar is also a U.S. Army veteran.

“The time I spent as a soldier shaped my commitment to public service,” said Bitar. “I am excited to work for an institution like NVMM that places such a strong emphasis on inclusive storytelling for all of our veterans, past and present.”
