Florida's World War II Memorial is a unique, multifaceted living Memorial. The components include: a World War II exhibit in the Museum of Florida History; a website filled with historical resources; the Florida World War II Heritage Trail guidebook dedicated to Florida's involvement in World War II and a permanent World War II monument in Tallahassee at the site of the Museum of Florida History.

Completed in 2004, this stone monument has as its centerpiece a replica of Florida's pillar in the National World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. and includes a marker for each of Florida's 67 counties.  These markers connect and honor local contributions to the overall war effort.
