About Lincoln Memorial, Washington D. C.

The gigantic stone Statue of Abraham Lincoln sitting on a seat is a beautiful monument to visit in Washington D.C. The lovely statue of the beloved president is an imposing sight to see.

The facade of the building is made up of Corinthian columns and within it sits the figure of Lincoln. There is a very serene expression on his face. The monument is simple and yet very impressive. Overlooking a beautiful pond and surrounded by trees, the place is certainly a delight for the eyes.

The place is also historically very important. The famous speech presented by Martin Luther King Juniorcalled “I have a Dream” had this famous monument as its historic backdrop.

  • A storied location that is still better in person than in photos. One thing I love every time I go is interacting with people from all over the world. A true melting pot at a shrine dedicated to freedom and equality. Other than taking in the grandeur of the statue and the gorgeous Yule marble, take note of the Gettysburg Address and second inaugural inscriptions to each side, as well as the spot on the steps where Martin Luther King, Jr. offered his "I Have a Dream Speech."

  • One of my favorite things in DC. The Lincoln Monument is really amazing. There are always tons of tourists there, but even just from the stairs you have a magnificent view of the reflecting pool. The exterior of the building is very intimidating and grand, and the inside lays the massive statue of Abe Lincoln sitting. The statue is very detailed and you can spend 10 minutes just walking around it admiring it. You can also walk around the outside which is cool because there usually aren't many people.

  • "Four score and seven years ago...". This is the site of the large marble Lincoln statue and his 2 most famous speeches - the Gettysburg address and his second Presidential Inaugural speech. If DC is my favorite city, then the Lincoln Memorial is my favorite place to visit in DC and I've been here many times. The Lincoln statue, reflecting pool and the Washington Monument along the Mall is a sight to behold. The areas around the memorial are very good for walks/jogs. Best part about it is that it is open 24 hours a day. Best time to visit is during twilight hours, either sunrise or sunset. And the best time of year to visit it is during the Cherry Blossom festival. One small con is that if you miss the turn around the Memorial, then you have to drive all along the Arlington Memorial Parkway and back.

  • Lively place I had watched this place in many Hollywood movies, got a chance to see it in real in 2015. I was very much impressed to see the place. It s very well maintained and a must visit place.

  • This is a mist visit place in DC. The walk is long, but worth it...great views of all the attractions around. The reflecting pool and the parks around with the fountains and the names of the states is a must see. Also, the view right from atop the memorial is a good one with Capitol Hill afar, Washington Monument and the pools, all in one line. Nice place to spend time also.
