Well designed monument with layout of U.S. efforts in World War I. The monument overlooks much of Chateau Thierry and the valley, so you get a nice view as well. Inside, there's a free visitor center with a small museum covering U.S. entry into World War I and what events transpired. There's even a motion sensor activated display with paintings and sounds of what took place in the trenches/battles. Lots of excellent information on the U.S. and the help it offered to turn the tide of the war at the end.

Free parking on site. Restrooms available as well. Check ahead though as the museum keeps limited hours dependent on the time of year.

This monument is enormous - sitting proud on the hillside overlooking the Marne Valley. It is a sobering site somewhere blending Vimy and the Lincoln Memorial and then adding steroids. Stunning in the early morning light - fitting for those brave souls who died in 1918.

This is definitely worth seeing, about an hour's drive from Paris. WWI memorial to French and American soldiers and don't forget to visit the small visitor center there. The memorial itself is huge and unforgettable.

What a great tribute to the Doughboys of 1918. Impressive, but also somewhat sad. It appeared neglected and it was obvious that not many Americans visit this memorial to a forgotten war. Go there.

So quiet. Hardly anyone there which made it very peaceful. Unfortunately the visitors centre was closed as it is following American not French guidance for COVID. Easy to get to and impressive.

While the monument is impressive, the visitor center/museum is the treasure on this stop. It provides excellent descriptions of what happened in this area during the Great War. Plan at least an hour in the visitors center.

Even if you're not a WWI buff, a visit to this memorial is inspiring. A massive monument sitting atop a bluff overlooking the town of the same name. This is also the site of the same battle. All the American units who fought have their logos shown, as well as the scheme of battle. This is a site that the French government has leased to the USA in perpetuity for our service in WWI. Well worth a detour if you're traveling in the Champagne region of France.

Impressive monument with view of the valley and the Marne where such important fighting took place. Immaculately maintained. Found by accident - didn't know it existed until we visited Chateau Thierry site of grandfather's war experience. We were the only visitors there. Viewing Marne river, lunch in village and WWI era buildings on the square made this a memorable stop. Can drive up from village to memorial easily. Wondered at contrast with crowds at WWII cemetery in Normandy vs. isolation here.

Quite a spot, with a wonderful view of Chateau-Thierry and the Marne River.

Of course, if you're looking at it from the other direction, I gather, the reviews get a bit mixed. The locals refer to it as the "radiator."

Walk up into the woods behind the memorial and you will find the remains of trenches.

We visited with an ex-US Marine so this visit was doubly interesting. The memorial dominates the landscape and can be seen on the hillside from miles around. When we visited there were gardeners there and it looked immaculate. We went to the town of Chateau Thierry first and one elderly gentleman spoke very animatedly to our very obviously American son in law. Sadly he couldn't understand a word, but the gentleman shook his hand and pointed to the monument. I guess they are still grateful for what the Americans did in both World Wars, especially given the history of Chateau Thierry which was a base for US troops.
The monument gives an amazing view of the town and surrounding countryside. It is very American, very big and very imposing. It is close to the cemetery at Bellau Wood and can be visited in the same day.
