The National Veterans Memorial and Museum seeks a Guest Experience Associate.

The National Veterans Memorial and Museum (NVMM) in Columbus, Ohio, represents a national initiative of profound importance for our nation’s 20+ million living Veterans. There was previously no single monument or museum dedicated to the Veteran experience in the U.S. until 2018. With 30,000 square feet available for exhibit space, this new institution celebrates the service and honors the sacrifice of Veterans throughout history. Envisioned by the late Senator John Glenn (1921-2016), Colonel, U.S. Marine Corps (Retired), as a gathering place for Veterans across the country, the museum opened to the public on October 27, 2018. NVMM presents the Veteran experience through the lens of personal stories and life-changing experiences from which guests will be inspired to learn more about our country’s history and actively engage in their own communities as informed citizens. Today, the NVMM connects and impacts lives nationwide through live, virtual and hybrid programming.  Learn more about the new home of the brave at, and we encourage you to visit the Museum online and in person when possible.
