I'm in awe every time I see this, got to take our 11 year old grandson for the first time, this was one of the things he wanted to see. We would like to go back later in evening when not so many people...very crowded

Make sure you visit this. The tour buses stop outside and you can see this and several other attractions nearby. We used the Big Bus tour.

you can park on any streets around the memorial area, regular street parking, but read the signs, they can get quite confusing.
