A space to Honor and to Learn...
We hope your experience visiting our Veterans Heritage Learning Center and the Veterans Cemetery is a moving and meaningful experience.
We endeavor to ensure that all our visitors can both appreciate the magnitude of sacrifice made by those interred on our grounds as well as learning about the vast history of New Hampshire veteran's service starting form the late 1600s up to our present day and beyond...
Due to our Learning Center is co-located on the cemetery grounds, there are potential times when groups of students visiting may be during times of full operations where military funerals are being conducted. With that in mind, we ask that for visitors and teachers with student groups be aware of this and ensure that appropriate decorum be observed while visiting.
Preparing for your Visit
We hope these tips will help everyone prepare for their visit and gain the best experience possible.
Parking at the Learning Center is along the side of the Administration Building. When Learning Center Groups are visiting, we ask that you park there. In the case of buses and larger groups, please contact the Cemetery staff to determine the best place to park so as not to interfere with the funeral operations at the cemetery.
The Learning Center includes static exhibits that cover highlights of New Hampshire's military history, 14 kiosks of featuring New Hampshire veterans and heroes from all services, an theater area where videos and films can be viewed, an interactive Remembrance Station and interactive 366 day calendar where significant historical events can be viewed by selecting a date. We are working hard to expend the learning offering through interactive displays which will be announcement as soon as they are installed and operational.
Teachers - for specific items, ideas, example curriculum, etc. the "For Teachers" page is the best resource prior to your visit.
Funerals - Daily funerals can happen at anytime from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Some days are busier than others (such as Fridays). We ask that when funeral cortege's arrive and military honors are being prepared that groups not enter the areas of the grounds where the burials are being conducted. If groups are outside, we ask that silence be observed when honors are rendered (3 rifles volleys followed by TAPS or in some cases just TAPS). * For teachers & students wishing to observe a military burial, permission would need to be obtained from the family prior to burial. If granted, the groups would be asked to stage themselves in an area at a reasonable distance to observe the burial while not interfering with the family during this time of grieving. We ask that groups in observance be respectful and silent during the burial.
Grave Locator - there is a grave locator inside the front lobby of the Administration Building to find a specific burial site. You can also ask the cemetery staff for assistance if there is a specific person you are trying to locate.
