This is not a huge monument / memorial but it manages to summon up the feeling of trepidation and fear of the soldiers and the sometimes awful weather conditions these brave men and women had to work in. The area is quiet and contemplative. It...More

Close to the better known Vietnam memorial, this is a moving memorial to the soldiers who served in the Korean War

We visited the Korean War Memorial at night and I'm glad we did. The memorial consists of a war with pictures of many of the men and women who died in the war and 19 individual soldiers. At night, the soldiers look ghostly, not quite...More

The faces on the wall seem to be reaching out. The figures are lifelike and you feel you are walking with them.

One of my favorite memorials in DC. The lifelike representation of the Infantry Soldiers is outstanding. I have seen it in snowy winter and in the heat of summer. While my favorite, make sure to check out all the war memorials.

A fitting tribute to war dead of the Korean War. As with all of the war memorials in Washington DC, very tastefully done.

Impressive Memorial of the Korea War but what makes it even more impressive is the fact that all participating countries are remembered. Mostly an overlooked fact.

This is a really nice memorial. It shows the soldiers on the battle field and what gear they would be wearing at the time.

This one often gets overshadowed by the Lincoln Memorial, but it's actually pretty cool! We visited it at night as a part of our tour bus experience and must say - with the rain splattering on - the atmosphere was surreal!

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!

The memorials are free, if you want to go up into the Washington Monument I would find out what day you will be there and pay the small fee online and get them ASAP!!
