The Korean War memorial is an excellent depiction of US soldiers on patrol in a rainy Korean peninsula. The layout of the sculptures is a daring concept and effectively conveys some of the risks, tension and boredom of soldiers at war in a foreign land....More

Been stopping to take photos and share honor to fallen Korean War and Veterans for years. Always worth a stop. Read the walls, look at the etchings, and thank the veterans standing or in wheelchairs for their service.

This is a silent tribute to a war that is often forgotten The changing faces of the sculptures and the mirror effect turning 19 into 38 is very clever Every angle you look you can see a face

We visited the Memorial as part of our VIP tour. It was so emotional and made you think about what conditions were like for the servicemen and women. Don't leave Washington without spending some time here.

I took my aging Father here to tour the monuments and he was so moved by the haunting faces of the statues and those contained on the the walls of this memorial. History comes alive and connects you deeply in the present!

We visited this monument three times in the 5 days we were in Washington DC. It is a great honor to a war not many people know about. It lasted on 38 months and took almost as many American lives as the twenty years we...More

I had been to this memorial before - and had been impressed with the statues. I didn't pay much attention to the wall. Maybe it was the time of day and the way the light was hitting it. This time I was struck by the...More

I loved the statue memory garden. This is a beautiful area. Not as “monumental” as other tributes but special in its own unique way. This is within walking distance of the Lincoln and WWII Memorials and should be seen in conjunction with those sites.

Very moving Memorial you don't want to miss! The etchings on the wall are very detailed, as is the soldiers standing among the bushes

Thank you for your service. There is no special daily event that is part of the monument although some service organizations meet there infrequently. Be advised that the winding path that ascends the monument has about 100... More

There is so much to see for free, that you will not have to pay for much. Eating is not the cheapest anywhere, but you're in DC. They're spending your money faster than you can! Enjoy!
