The monument is very impressive, day or night. The Civil War Museum underneath is free and worth the visit if you are interested in war and history.

Having evenings free after conference, this was very neat to visit at night. Visited on 9/12 and it was poignant the day after the anniversary of 9/11. Great historical monument!

Amazing display of historical artifacts in the "donation basis" museum. This magnificant monument was started in 1888 with the detail is just unblievable. The setting breathtaking. The historical value unmatched.

I was really impressed with this historical building. My husband and I walked up the stairs 331 steps OMG we were so tired at the top but the view is AMAZING!!! The history of the memorial is awesome too. I donated money just because we actually took the elevator back down. I totally recommend everyone to visit. Very nice.

A beautiful building that stores history, it took us quite a while to get thru it. So many amazing things to look at. I personally like the 911 memorial, its small but so powerful.
