, 1997.

The Ceremonial Entrance was originally dedicated in 1932, when the Arlington Memorial Bridge opened, but was never actually completed or maintained. It was modified to include a reflecting pool, engraved glass panels on its roof and other changes.

Inside is an museum area featuring exhibits on women in the military and military history, an education center and small theater.
