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.

Lincoln Memorial, Washington D. C. Reviews - Write a Review
I visited here with my family on labor day weekend. Parking was free in the entire DC area specially around Constitution Ave where most of the monuments are located. The entire area is very beautiful and specially at that time weather was magnificent. If you are able to walk and OK with a lot of walking then I would suggest not to take a tour and just walk and enjoy the weather and beautiful environment. In weekends it is very crowded.
I thoroughly enjoyed my visit here, but feel that it should be a peaceful environment and not one riddled with protesting. There was a large group of people standing in the middle of the stairs yelling and obstructing what would’ve been nice complete pictures of the building and stairs. Then another person was holding a large sign speaking against our president on a lower plateau. Just wish we could’ve enjoyed it as a place to see, and not ruin it with current day’s political opinions.
Phenomenal monument. Just walking up the stairs to the monument makes your body have chills from all the great historical moments that have occurred at the monument. I highly recommend seeing this monument in person. My one of my favorite monument in Washington DC.
Loved it, a piece of history. Lincoln himself is huge I didnt expect him to be quite so impressive in real life. The detail is incredible. Loved the calm feel of the place, and the view from the top of the stairs.
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."
