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.

Truly a magnificent place to visit while in Washington, D.C. It's not to be missed and everyone should visit this place at least once in their life! The size of the monument in comparison to humans is absolutely astounding huge with the granite columns, the granite statue, pedestal, inscriptions on the walls, etc. Truly beautiful. The place does get filled up fast with a constant throng of visitors going in and out of the memorial. If you have to get photos, be sure to be quick! Also, while you're there, be sure to look left and right of the statue to read his famous address etched into the wall. There's also a small gallery below (down the stairs to the right where you can also find the restrooms). This gallery, like a museum, has historical facts about Lincoln. Once outside of the memorial, there's lots to see -- on the left is the Vietnam Memorial, on the right is the Korean War Veterans Memorial, straight in front is the Reflecting Pond, and across from that is the National World War 2 Memorial so there's lots to see and keep yourself occupied. A great national treasure that everyone should see when in Washington, D.C!
Excellent place to visit and be sure to bring the kids. We had such a blast here in 2004 and have been back several times over the years. My last visit was a few months ago and took a spectacular picture across the reflecting pool. Winter time has the reflecting pool usually drained so be warned.
Beautiful. When there are a lot of people around, it's really packed and busy and not as quiet, although the signs ask you to be quiet. The view from the steps of the reflecting pool and Washington Monument is awesome. It's also amazing to go during a quiet time and just walk around in the big hall.
Worth Visiting This is worth visiting if one is in D.C. But a memorial is a memorial. It doesn't provide interaction or much depth. So if you set your expectations as that, you won't be disappointed that it's just a large structure. It's very touristy so expect crowds.
The monument is amazing and so majestic. I love all the stairs leading up to the statue of Lincoln. It is also wheelchair accessible and for those that cannot climb all the stairs, there is an elevator that takes you up there. Restrooms are also available near the statue. While looking at the beautiful Statue you also have an awesome view of the Washington Memorial!
