It is free and close to other Memorials. Every person that has served in World War II should visit here.

Walked through to admire this memorial. All 50 states represented, one can't help but walk around to find their hometown or their favorite state. Though too cold to run the fountains, one can still imagine how beautiful it would be in motion. Restrooms nearby were even warmly heated and very clean. A must see as well.

My father was a veteran of WWII so I felt especially proud and moved to visit the memorial. It is peaceful and beautifully executed architecture. Do not miss this when you are in DC.

The scale of this monument is an appropriate memorial to the huge sacrifice from all states of the USA in the war. Fountains are not on in winter but when they are in full swing it really adds to the majesty of the venue.

A great monument to the greatest generation. if you can find out when Honor flight will bring a group of vets to the monument, go then! Great to see the old guys honored. The monument itself is impressive.
