Reviews for Lincoln Memorial
Excellent place to visit and be sure to bring the kids. We had such a blast here in 2004 and have been back several times over the years. My last visit was a few months ago and took a spectacular picture across the reflecting pool. Winter time has the reflecting pool usually drained so be warned.
Beautiful. When there are a lot of people around, it's really packed and busy and not as quiet, although the signs ask you to be quiet. The view from the steps of the reflecting pool and Washington Monument is awesome. It's also amazing to go during a quiet time and just walk around in the big hall.
Worth Visiting This is worth visiting if one is in D.C. But a memorial is a memorial. It doesn't provide interaction or much depth. So if you set your expectations as that, you won't be disappointed that it's just a large structure. It's very touristy so expect crowds.
The monument is amazing and so majestic. I love all the stairs leading up to the statue of Lincoln. It is also wheelchair accessible and for those that cannot climb all the stairs, there is an elevator that takes you up there. Restrooms are also available near the statue. While looking at the beautiful Statue you also have an awesome view of the Washington Memorial!
Definitely a bucket list item. We went at night and, while it was cold (February), the weight of history just standing there was absolutely staggering. The building is simply massive and the view across the reflecting pool is gorgeous. There is a marker where Martin Luther King gave his famous speech and standing there gives you goosebumps. To avoid crowds, though, I really would urge going at night.
