“Realistic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

The Korean War Memorial is the most realistic war memorial I have ever seen. The best time to visit it is at night when the figures seem to come to life. Beautiful

“Moving memorial”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

This memorial is well worth a visit. It personalizes the soldiers who fought in the Korean War through showing line of sculptures. The sculptures are beautifully crafted. This memorial does not have the emotional impact of the simpler Vietnam War Memorial, but is very good.

“Moving.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

This was so beautifully laid out against a background of autumn leaves that it took our breath away.

“Great Memorial on the Western Mall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Visited here (and the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial) over Veteran's Day weekend. The location is thoughtful in that it is across the reflecting pool from the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial. If you're visiting here I would recommend parking in the area along the Potomac off Independence Avenue (where the athletic fields are). During the week this will be a challenge if you don't get there early because a lot of folks use that area. From there it is an easy walk to the Mall and the Jefferson and Franklin Roosevelt memorials.

“moving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

On the same grounds but opposite side as the Vietnam Veterans Memorial this has a story telling of statues in a lovely garden. This area of the Mall is a short walk or can be accessed by trolley or the red bus.
