Our kids loved watching the guard change procession. It happens every hour on the hour during the day. If you don't see the guard change- it's a little dull :)

Fab place to wander around and visit. The Memorial Hall is vast and there's an interesting museum underneath. Good photo opportunies on the hour when the guard changes.

Great time! Frozen event was set up, so it diminished the view a bit, but beautiful! Would recommend on a sunny day

The changing of the guard was great. I have read people who disparage the man, but who cares. He was fighting for his country, fighting fascism, and communism. It was not an easy time, so just move on and appreciate the national pride of the...More

This memorial hall is a very interesting place like a war and culture museum with a few souvenir shops at each of its few entrances. There are huge historical paintings about the wars, and patrols are demonstrated a few times throughout the day both inside...More

Yes they have handicap access. Elevators serve all floors. The grounds are a bit large though.
