“Very surprised how much time we spent there.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

I thought I would stop and shoot a couple pictures with the kids and be on our way. The guide was very informative and kept the discussion to the level of the audience. Being able to climb the stairs and see the dome up close and then go out on the deck and see the city was way more than I thought it would be. They we stopped at a few of the other famous people in the some cemetery. There is also a chapel that was designed by Tiffany and Co of New York. That was just gorgeous. Like I said I was surprised how much time we did end up spending there.

“Inspiring.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

This was a beautiful monument, and the docent was very informative. I found it interesting that Garfield himself was not a fan of big monuments such as this. I wish that the park rangers in the monument were able to stamp National Parks passports at the monument.

“Beautiful work of art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

This whole building is a work of art! Stop in for a visit, on memorial day there is a band that plays and you can stand out on the balcony of the memorial and listen to the music.
