Having been in mausoleums and crypts elsewhere and mostly bored by them, we almost took a pass on this place because it isn't exceedingly imposing from a roadside view and we didn't know what would be inside. We also had competing priorities for our time. However, I am so glad we finally decided to come here because what we encountered... More

My son was anxious to visit, I could not imagine what would be so interesting. The tomb was very tastefully done and beautiful, there is an outstanding view of Cleveland if you walk to the balcony.

I didn't get to go inside, but the exterior was both fascinating and impressive! Located in Lake View Cemetery, make sure you keep your bearings and also check out the Rockefeller Obelisk and Haserot Angel of Death while you're there.

I didn't know much about President Garfield before my trip, but visiting his monument gave my the chance to see the impact he had during and after his life. lots of photo opportunities, and the workmanship put into the building is incredible. Public washroom and giftshop on site.

Garfield Monument is a beautiful memorial to our United States President. A docent will present many facts about the Monument and president. The site is interesting and worth the 30 minute, free visit. Climb to the top of the Monument and the best views of Cleveland can be found!

We visited the Garfield Monument on our tour of Ohio Presidential Sites. This place is very impressive and so full of symbolism. There was a guide there that gave us so much information about Garfield himself, about the memorial, and about the symbols. We stayed much longer than we had planned because all of us on our 3 generation tour... More

I didn't know much about President Garfield's record and policies -- or the fact that he was assassinated -- until I visited this memorial. It also has spectacular views of Cleveland and is nearby the scenic Case Western Reserve campus, which features a Frank Gehry designed building.

Stunning, elaborate memorial to one of our more obscure Presidents; well worth the visit. At least on our July 4 visit this year, visitors had access the the upper floor balcony and the outdoor veranda overlooking the cemetery with great views of the lake and city. A friendly tour guide was present to answer questions (“Who paid for this? Why?”... More

I would've liked to see more artifacts or personal items, but beautiful monument. Loved the paintings on the ceiling!

Visited on a beautiful day. I'm not a big history buff but those I went with were and they loved hearing about the Monument.
