We visited it during the evening where some are lighted and some are not. Sculptures are nice to see.

I think all the memorials should be seen at night ,as well as, the day time. It gives them a different perspective. The night visit was neat to see the hallowing statues in the appearance of the fields of Korea. There is also a reflecting...More

A really beautiful memorial. The life size men with their guns and radios are impressive and make you want to find out more about them. Worth seeing.

This memorial was very impactful. The design is fantastic and creates a realistic sense of the patrol moving through the trees and shrubs. Provides a somber reflection

There are many monuments and memorials in Washington DC. I felt this was unique due to the different parts, such as the etched granite wall which depicts various soldiers. The statues communicate feelings that words cannot describe.

There are 19 life like statues of soldiers - with a reflective wall meaning that 38 images represent the 38th parallel. Surrounded by gardens, trees and reglecting pool. Very moving.

We visited this site on a night tour of Washington, DC. If you go at night, make sure you look for the reflection of the steel statues in the wall along side the memorial. Do not miss this!

This memorial doesn't get the attention some others do but is well worth visiting and is located just a 2 minute walk from Lincoln Memorial. The soldiers statues are very well done, be sure to check out their faces and all the detail.

This looks like a patrol walking across a paddy field and really brings it home how awful North Korea is.

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!!
