I had previously visited this memorial (pre-tripadviser days) when I lived in the DC area decades ago. So I figured I would take a look for old times sake. Nothing much had changed for me, but you will enjoy the museum and the collections. If...More

GW Masonic monument is nearby King Street Station and Braddock Place. One mile or two so it's good for a run up and back. Once you get up there you are afforded a panoramic view of Alexendria and DC. I find it a nice place...More

I have taken several guests to tour the Memorial, and they are always impressed with its history, architecture, art, and grandeur. But the coolest this is when the upper-level scenic overlook "catwalk" is open--the views are exceptional.

We took a tour on the trolley that took us past here. It is a beautiful building. We didn't get off and go in.

Had a wonderful tour. Felt a little rushed though. There was a lot to see and we would have wished to spend more time in the different areas but were only allowed 10-15 minutes per area. The viewing deck alone deserved 15-20 minutes! Alas, the...More

It is a little bit pricy to visit it. If you want to go up to see a view you have to take a tour. And it cost you $15. If you can't make it to catch any tour but you want to just see...More

The memorial opens at 9a.m. We arrived a few minutes before 9a.m. Plenty of parking and a short walk to the main entrance. There is an entrance closer to the parking lot for those who may have problems with the stairs. It was Easter, there...More

Visit Old town of Alexandria and stop by this place. Did not go in because it required ticket to go in. A location to see old town from the hill.

We learnt loads on our tour, saw some incredible artifacts, and enjoyed brilliant views of Alexandria from the top of the tower. Very knowledgeable and informative guide, and a very interesting place to visit, particularly if (like me) you don't know much about freemasonry.

not sure about ticket for infant depending how old. Tour is long with talking. You can tour on your own without a group and I believe that is free. take the King Street trolley to the end of the line and you do have a little hike, like up a big hill by road or hike the stairs. There must be parking but we walked. Also, Metro has a stop at the bottom of the hill. no restaurant inside but on King Street lots and also at the bottom of the hill on King Street
