Hold your reenlistment, promotion, retirement, change-of-command, or meeting at the Navy Memorial

The US Navy Memorial is an impressive venue with state-of-the-art capabilities located downtown on Pennsylvania Avenue between the White House and the Capitol Building.  

The Navy Memorial boasts state-of-the-art capabilities including:

• Dolby Digital 7.1 Surround Sound
• Digital Cinema Projection
• Full Audio-Visual Support
• Sound Isolation
• Adjustable Lighting
• Climate Control
• Wheel Chair Accessible 
In addition to providing technical capabilities ranked among the best in Washington DC, the Navy Memorial is equipped with a full catering kitchen and service that can provide anything from modest refreshments to formal dinners.  Each year the Navy Memorial hosts more than 650 events, most of which, are Navy related and we take our meetings and ceremonies seriously. Our mission is to Honor, Recognize and Celebrate the men and women of the Sea Services; so unlike other venues, our staff knows the Navy and its ceremonies.

The Navy Memorial has 3,000 square feet of state-of-the-art event and meeting space.  Four unique spaces with unlimited layout options:

Arleigh and Roberta Burke Theater seats 250 guests comfortably
    and has advanced technological capabilities  
Gallery Deck is our principal exhibit space and reception area
Presidents Room (soon to re-open as the National Chiefs’ Mess)
    is adjoined to the Gallery Deck by retractable
    paneled doors,
which may be closed for individual events
Asiatic-Pacific Fleet Room was designed with a Ward Room feel for smaller meetings
The Navy Memorial is easily accessible for your guests, conveniently located and sits in good company across the street from the National Archives and several blocks from the United States Capitol.
Visit the Navy Memorial and experience the sounds of the Navy Super Hornet flying overhead, missiles launched from destroyers, and the CNO’s introduction to the Navy Memorial.  See Navy artifacts up close, such as a full Navy diving suit from the 50’s, MCPON Terry Scott’s uniform worn on September 11, 2001, or get a group picture next to the world-famous Lone Sailor Statue in the Memorial Plaza.  All of which provide an unmatchable backdrop of Naval history for your ceremony.
