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.

Definitely a bucket list item. We went at night and, while it was cold (February), the weight of history just standing there was absolutely staggering. The building is simply massive and the view across the reflecting pool is gorgeous. There is a marker where Martin Luther King gave his famous speech and standing there gives you goosebumps. To avoid crowds, though, I really would urge going at night.
The giant solemnity of Lincoln in this memorial is a perfect tribute to the man himself. Excellent views from the steps of the entire National Mall area all the way to the Capital at the other end. A tiny gift shop is available and don't miss the small gallery on the lower level with rotating and permanent exhibits related to Lincoln. (Access it from the outside at the bottom of the stairs to the left, or via elevator from the top on the left side (head left when you walk in)...bonus here that there is an elevator you can use if you're not able to use the stairs to get to the monument.
So much of our Nation's history here. The statue itself is breathtaking. I also didn't realize there is a tiny museum inside the building. If you're an American you need to come here at least once in your life. Also, the view from here is amazing as well. Good opportunities for great photos.
Great historical monument. I go here any time I have some family in town, the whole mall is awesome. I didn't know they had a gift shop. And reading the inaugural speech and being in the presence of that kind of figure is inspiring. Great American experience. Take a moment to look up while inside the temple.
Amazing to see. I highly recommend it. (It's worth the walk up all of those stairs!) The sculptor who made this wanted to show both sides of Lincoln. Make sure if you go there that you don't just look at the front; you look at the left and right sides. You'll then see the two sides of Lincoln; war and at peace.
