Such a beautiful monument. Saw it near the end of day so the lights were coming on.

“Jefferson's Bunorial”
Reviewed December 5, 2011

Yes. It looks like a round danish-bun. The informational displays were not fitting for the greatness of this man. The grounds are sad, wilted lawns and much wire fencing. Shame on whoever is responsible for maintaning this treasure.

“Thank you!”
Reviewed December 3, 2011

As an American, visit or revisit this memorial and read the Jefferson's writings on the wall. They should resonate with every American and call us back into action to restore our country to the great nation it truly is. Thanks to Jefferson for his courage to write the Declaration and to stand on guiding Biblical principles!

“The Monticello in all its Glory!”
Reviewed December 3, 2011

From near and afar, the Jefferson Memorial reminds us of the architecture of Monticello, and the president who read voraciously and had a library unlike any other president! The pillars of this landmark are magnificent, and Thomas Jefferson stands under the dome. This is a splendid memorial to the president who wrote the Declaration of Independence. (By the way, his handwriting is exquisite)!

“Beautifully Situated”
Reviewed December 2, 2011

Off the beaten path a little away from the national mall, so not so busy! Lovely views over the tidal basin.
