Anyone will be moved by a visit to this memorial. I have visited this memorial more time than I can count, but never miss it on a trip to DC if possible.

The memorial is open 24/7 and best visited both during the day and at night to get great photos of the Lincoln statue. On the same level as the Lincoln statue is a book store and an elevator that takes you down to a small museum and rest room. From the top steps you can also take photos looking over... More

The sense of awe and inspiration that you get from this sanctuary is powerful! I take my out of town and out of country visitors there each time.

Nice memorial to one of the good presidents of the USA. Famous statue of Abraham Lincoln inside a big marble chamber with his famous speech engraved in the walls. Just beside the memorial are 2 nice memorial parks for veterans of the Korean and Vietnam war

Beautiful pool out front of the memorial. Just like in Forrest Gump where Jenny comes out of the pool to reconcile. Pool extends to the Washington monument (obelisk). Walk up stairs and enter some rooms. Copy of the constitution written on stone. The statue of Abraham Lincoln is really huge as he peers down on you. You can see other... More
