A must see for anyone visiting DC. The Korean War Memorial is totally different from any of the other War Memorials. Amazing! Don't forget to look at the wall and see the soldiers looking back out at you!

Definitely liked the field of bronze(?) slightly larger than life statues. Nothing to do but walk around it but worth a look when near the Lincoln memorial.

The Korean War Memorial is the most realistic war memorial I have ever seen. The best time to visit it is at night when the figures seem to come to life. Beautiful

This memorial is well worth a visit. It personalizes the soldiers who fought in the Korean War through showing line of sculptures. The sculptures are beautifully crafted. This memorial does not have the emotional impact of the simpler Vietnam War Memorial, but is very good.

This was so beautifully laid out against a background of autumn leaves that it took our breath away.
