Who We Are:
The mission of the Virginia War Museum Foundation is to facilitate the dissemination of information and promote the activities of the Virginia War Museum, Lee Hall Mansion, and Endview Plantation and the other various historic Civil War sites. The Foundation serves to protect and preserve historic sites and monuments within the city of Newport News, Virginia, and also to collect and preserve artifacts relating to the study of American military history.
Through its fundraising activities, membership fees, and grants, the Virginia War Museum Foundation assists the Virginia War Museum, Lee Hall Mansion, and Endview Plantation in the acquisition, preservation and display of historic artifacts germane to their missions. The Foundation supports and encourages activities at each historic site to further the education and enjoyment of history for individuals of all ages.
