District Of Columbia War Memorial Reviews & Ratings

  • Beautiful to see. We chose to visit on the hottest day in July 2019. However learning about what each of the symbols of this monument represents was truly one of the best opportunities given. The Rainbow Pool is inviting, and it is really a lot of fun to stick you feet in and be part of the celebration as the soldiers did with the fountains in Europe once the war was over. I would encourage everyone to stop and take in the beauty of this monument and learn all that you can. My children (ages 10 & 13) weren't bored and found discovering the meaning interesting to learn about.

  • I have never been to heaven but all that God created was there to enjoy. The trees, ducks, air, water, the beautiful white clouds, people from all different states the air was not polluted with the smell of cigarettes. It clean, peaceful, respectful, I would luv to come back again. I would highly recommend others to site see the history.

  • Great place to visit. An absolute must for everyone! oh my goodness, this is an absolutely amazing place. You can feel love in your heart. More people should visit and experience the sobering feelings for everything it represents about our history, patriotism and more. Great to visit day and night.

  • This is an absolutely beautiful monument. I would never have believed they could outdo the Korean or Vietnam memorials, but they did. The monument is massive. The running water is very peaceful. Every state is represented as are the two theaters of the war. People are very respectful, so even when it is very busy, it's almost like being in a library, outdoors with a better view!

  • Beautiful memorial to visit and dip your feet in the water on a hot day. I wish there wouldn’t have been as many people as there were just because pictures aren’t the same when people are in the way of the shot. It was sad to see the Freedom Wall and I appreciate all of those who have, will, and currently are serving for our nations freedom.
