“Another Presidential Monument”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Well there's a large statue of Jefferson here, not unlike to other monuments! Definitely a good stop on your tour and it is impressive to see the quotes and to get a feel for the founding fathers.
I've said this before, but it does evoke some emotions and a yearning for today's politicians to be as focused and driven as these leaders were.

“A must!!!!”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

Very cool!! A bit out of the way so take a tour bus, but it's worth it. Very beautiful grounds, great views of DC & other landmarks. A lot to read on the walls, a lot of history.....a must!!!!

“Perfect end to the Mall”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

We walked the whole length of the Mall, from the Lincoln Memorial to the Jefferson Memorial and this was the perfect end, as both of these Memorials mark the boundary.
