The Lincoln Memorial deserves infinity stars. However, the inauguration preparations are currently marring what should be a more moving experience. There's scaffolding and workers everywhere. Still, the memorial is awe-inspiring and certainly worth anyone's time. There is a small museum located at the base of the monument (before you walk up the stairs) describing the process of building it as... More

Going there was amazing. The feeling was so calm, it really puts things in perspective about how you feel about this legendary man.

Such a iconic site that was so amazing to in person. It was very crowded and tough to get up close or get a picture.

The Lincoln memorial is a must see in D.C. Unfortunately, because of inauguration, there are big structures in front of the monument, and the pictures are not so nice....

An absolute must see if you are visiting D.C.! There was lots of construction going on while we were there since they were putting together the concert stage for the inauguration but it was still amazing to stand before such an iconic spot of American history! I love that so much of D.C.'s sights are free to visit!

It's so impressive at night and usually a little less crowded. I would recommend starting your tour of the National Mall here. The steps can be a little rough in the winter, but it's the best monument in town hands down.

Beautiful garden, not too many people around, the memorial is is not a must when sightseeing around US capital, but is a nice experience.

Just opposite the Washington monument is the Lincoln monument on a walking distance.. With green lush gardens around and a fountain in between the white building structure with big pillars look amazing. At the start of the premise, there are big war memorial pillars as well... Its a good walk on a green garden towards the monument... Walk up the... More

Splendid place although a bit ruined by Inauguration Day's installations, but totally worth it. Don't miss the Martin Luther King's speech point !
