All reviews their faces soldier statues life size moving tribute larger than life men and women great tribute my favorite national mall reflecting pool memorial haunting patrol wall field platoon etchings
The best part of this memorial is the mural wall. Just looking and seeing the faces of the men who risked their lives for others is a very touching scene. The quotes that are there just make your heart swell.
I hadn't expected much when I arrived at the Korean War Veterans Memorial. I had come to the area for the Lincoln Memorial and the Vietnam Memorial, but it was the Korean war memorial that really touched me the most. It's haunting, striking, and with...More
I did not expect much - I hadn't read the reviews of this memorial. We stumbled upon it - it was at night. We knew it was there, but it was quite dark in the area where it was supposed to be. We had some...More
I try to visit this memorial every time I am in D.C and am more moved by it each time I do. Taking nothing away from the other monuments on the Mall, I think the Korean War Memorial is the best. It captures the interplay...More
I was totally surprised at how beautiful this memorial was. It was, to me, more impressive than the Vietnam Memorial. I'm not sure why, I was just expecting so much more from the Vietnam Memorial. When I came across the Korean War Memorial, the faces...More
This is a very moving war memorial.

There is a wall with the inscription "Freedom is not free"- a poignant and eloquent reminder....More
I was recently on a monuments by moonlight tour (new moon) and I think seeing this monument to Korean War vets is just awsome at night. Especially with the soldiers spread out and with the flashes of the cameras it gave it the feeling of...More
"Freedom is not free" is the quote located at this memorial, and it really makes you stop and think about their sacrifice. I felt that this was the most beautiful war monument in DC. I was VERY offended when a woman WASHED HER HANDS in...More
I feel certain that simply visiting / viewing this memorial and the figures presented will bring forth a flood of memories that only a veteran of this conflict would have. That alone is something special!
Hey guys! I'm taking a solo trip and I really want to see as MUCH as possible - even if I don't get to experience everything as fully as I could. I definitely don't want to be running through everything so much so that I am not able to enjoy it, but I don't need several hours to experience each thing. Because my last visit to D.C. was when I was very young, and because I will probably be spending my summer there, I really just want to see as much as possible. I arrive very early in...More

Excuse me but this is not a travel agency. You don't get to tell people to build you an itinerary. Get a guidebook and a map and group the stuff by area.

Are the kids good walkers? Day Two requires a lot of walking. It is from one end of The National Mall to another. Download the map of The National Mall at home now. You will see for yourself how the tourist sites are grouped. April is a lovely time to visit.
Memorials / The price of freedom (2 Replies)
Freedom is Not Free, is written at the Korean War Veterans Memorial. I´m sure I read somewhere : The price of freedom is not free. Does anybody know where that might be ? Thank you
