Really majestic and you can read Lincoln's speeches which are etched into the interior walls. This monument also has a beautiful view across the reflection pool to the Washington Memorial.

Visiting the Lincoln Memorial is obviously a must when visiting DC and rightfully so. Personally, what makes this memorial particularly memorable is the whole experience of having to walk through the National Mall and up the steps to see it.

A very impressive and magnificent monument, just in scale and design and constructions. Amazing. And then to reflect on the man, and read the walls inside the monument with the text of his speeches is power. And then there is the view across the mall from the monument. Well worth the long walk along the mall to visit. Our visit... More

A must see. It's a great place to get an awsome view and picture of the Washington monument as well. We learned from a tour guide on a walking tour that onthe other side of the monument there is a misspelled word in the inscription in the stone.

A must see for anyone young or old, families, solo or friends - history buffs or ordinary citizens! The Lincoln Memorial offers a perfect overlook. The monument itself is awesome and full of symbolism.

While the statue is impressive, the wisdom of the words engraved in the very high walls left and right of the memorial must be read and remembered for the sake of freedom and democracy.
