I hate to keep repeating myself but if you are ever able to visit our nation's captial, please do so. If you are able to a guided tour, so so as well.

It was quite impressive to see the monument and the flags surrounding it. It was interesting to see the difference in coloring on the stones due to the delay in completion. Must see!

We recently visited all of the monuments in the area. A beautiful place to walk. Bring comfortable shoes and cooling towels because it's HOT. We took our teenage grandchildren and they loved it all. The city is history and the future combined. It's amazing to...More

Very impressive monument. The inside is closed until 2019 due to maintenance so that was a bummer but I bet the views from the top are great!

While the Monument itself is impressive and stands tall above D.C., it is worth going inside. It can be crowded and you need to get tickets ahead of time, but you will learn quite a bit and get to see downtown in a different way....More

It invokes feelings of liberty and patriotism. The air just seemed to blow differently at this monument. Nice experience.

This amazing monument is the most visible from so many places in the city. I love the flags they have surrounding it.

The elevator was being upgraded so the monument is closed for another two years. Even so, what a sight to see. From any angle it is a truly remarkable sight. Ya' gotta visit it.

This monument towers over DC, I have seen it on so many films over the years and to see it in person was special. You don't realise how big it is until you are right next to it! Highly recommend!

A beautiful sight (even if you can't go into it), especially when lit up at night. The perfect leisurely stroll after dinner.

Typically cancellations are done at the Visitor Centrex or at the Park Rangers Office. I have seen it being done at Visitor Centrex in some places though I have not done it .

About 30 minutes. When you get to the top, you theoretically can spend as much time as you want. Most people spend about 15 minutes taking in the views and reading the information on the walls before heading back to the... More
