“History that Gives One Goose Bumps”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

We had a sense of awe and wonder visiting this memorial. A trip inside the structure is as important as seeing the statue of Jefferson. They also have bathrooms, so it's a good stop for those with children. If you don't feel America's History here, you are not alive. A good way to get here without being worn out is taking a hop on hop off bus.

“Class and impact”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Not sure why this is such a favorite of mine, it's just simple, tasteful, and powerful. I didn't want to leave the memorial. We saw it on our tour at night, and it's beautifully lit with plenty of room to move around, even with other groups there. It's awesome to see these men honored in this way.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

My boys and I loved being able to visit this memorial to our nation's 3rd President. He was a great man in life and he will live on in our memories because of memorials like this.

“See It At Night”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

The Jefferson Memorial is beautiful, but ofter overlooked or skipped because it's off the beaten path of the main National Mall landmarks (Washington Memorial/Lincoln Memorial/Reflecting Pool.) We enjoyed seeing this attraction at night, it is beautifully lit at night and we really had chance to enjoy the attraction in silence, which added to the drama of the memorial. A great attraction either way - but avoid the crowds and enjoy the enhanced beauty by viewing it at night.
