Owner description: A 19-foot bronze statue of perhaps the most esteemed founding father sits beneath a columned rotunda in the style of the Roman Pantheon.

A great monument and very inspiring. A large space with a statue of Thomas Jefferson in a unique structure. Not a lot to do, but a great place to reflect and enjoy the view. As typical with most DC memorials....free but not much parking, if any.

All the memorials are such wonderful sites day or night. If you go at night try to go when it's not windy or cold. The view from the inside looking out at the other monuments and tidal basin with the lights is fantastic. Our guide passed on so much information that I hadn't heard before was interesting. Would recommend stopping by if you're in the area.

Try and coincide your visit with cherry blossom festival time. Monument looks fab up close and from water if you hire a paddle boat! As impressive as Lincoln memorial though less busy. DC Circulator stops just behind it if you want to get there for $1 from the mall area or Washington monument

It’s hard to write a meaningful review of these memorials seen over and over again, but I must say that no matter how many times I see it, I am always left in awe.

Thoroughly enjoyable to see, but a long cold walk around the Tidal Basin was worth it, but leaving was pure hell. Plan accordingly.
