  • The National World War II Memorial is one of the most inspiring in DC for these reasons: 1) It's lit at night- the best time to go. How they arranged the lights is magical as you watch the giant fountain spray up water back lit by lights. It's flanked by the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial also lit up making for great night photography. 2) Often times you will see WWII vets from around the world at this memorial. Many of them love being asked there story. 3) Each pillar represents a US state. It's fun to find your home state and take a photo by it. If you're on the Mall any way, make this a MUST DO!

  • A powerful and awe inspiring visit. When we visited there were a few honor flights of veterans there. To walk around and see the stars that portray the loss of nearly a 1/2 million Americans and to do next to someone who lived it was humbling. We owe those men and women so much. It was a privilege to share that moment with them. And to be able to thank these veterans seemed like the least we could do.

  • I loved this memorial, it was truly beautiful!! So much dedication for our fallen soldiers. We came here at night first and the way the lights hit that water is really nice. So we had to return in the morning. This is a must if in the area. Just beautiful!!

  • This place is absolutely INCREDIBLE!!! I went here with my school and everyone thought it looked best at night. It is amazing. Definetely recommend to visit it!

  • A pleasantly situated memorial and since it is at the crossroads of everything, it is easy and worth visiting. But it is not as moving as the Vietnam memorial, not as grand as the Lincoln memorial, and the design elements don't tell much of a story. It is attractive, but it is not one of my top memorials, especially relative to the significance of what it is memorializing.
