It's a patriotic show performed by the soldiers of the Old Guard. The show is usually performed every Wednesday from May till August. It features current active duty military personell perfuming in uniforms from every American War. All in all the show takes about one hour and afterwards you get the chance to take pictures with the participants.

The US Army soldiers posted to Fort Myer put this show on, and the pageantry of history and talent cannot be equaled in the DC area--plus, it's free! Held on a beautiful hillside overlooking Washington, DC, the Tattoo includes not only traditional tattoo activities (close order drill, military band, marching), but also contemporary song and dance numbers, horses, and canons! Go--it will be one of your fondest memories of your trip to Washington.

Whenever my husband and I attend a conference in DC every June, we always ensure that Twilight Tattoo is on our agenda. We go with a large group and it is very enjoyable to say the least.

We went to this several years ago (Tripadvisor does not give that as a date option). We and our three children, who were preteen or younger at the time, highly enjoyed the evening. Fun for history buffs, military buffs, and anyone who just needs a patriotism boost. Great music too.

GREAT performance by real soldiers who are veterans of recent battles, paying tribute to their prdecessors by donning period uniforms and reenacting scenes from every major war since the American Revolution; plus inspiring band music and awe-inspring Drill Team routines. Before going, visit the website to learn which gate(s) provide access to the base for civilian visitors, what ID must be carried, and what items are prohibited.
