Until I was there for Winterfest, I did not realize you could actually go inside the monument. There is some interesting information and visuals on Cleveland's contribution to the civil war if you are interested in that kind of thing. The space though was old musty. Not really worth the time to make a special trip there unless you are... More

I was stuck in traffic and got to see this about five times from every angle. It is surrounded by a very close street, almost an after through the in city planning. The monument itself beautiful...easy access and location....horrible.

This is a beautiful monument and full of history. Tim, who runs the monument, is full of historical knowledge and eager to share. A historic Cleveland gem that is maintained by people who actually care about history.

If you are on Public Square, you cannot miss the Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument. To honour the fallen in such a spectacular way. If you study the significance of each statue, you understand the deeper meaning on the monument. My mother and I got to do their underground tunnel tour which was very informative and interesting. You learn such a... More

While I realize the historical significance of the memorial there just isn't much to see. The inside is dark and the plaques on the wall list the names of men and women that gave their lives for our country. While it is extremely important to remember them the presentation is just not captivating at all.

This place is a nice with water fountain. There are many nearby restaurants. It is a nice area to walk around. We went there on a week day. I fully enjoy shopping and dining in the area.

It is time for Cleveland to re-design their memorial to an updated version and replace this. I am not suggesting to remove the honor or the purpose. Just re-sesign it into something more modern, moving and beautiful. It is too dated and it looks very awkward there!

Despite being located next to the Tower, this monument holds its own. To be admired for the sculpture, interpretation of the subject.

Or really, if you're a history buff at all. This is a classic Civil War monument with an interior that you can tour. It will not take a lot of time, but you will be well rewarded by the experience.
