DC At Dusk Guided Night Tour

1,975 reviews
See Washington DC lit up at night on this guided mini-bus tour. Drive by and stop at some of the city’s top memorials and attractions, including the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Marine Corps War Memorial, and the Lincoln Memorial, which are usually less crowded after dark. With transportation and navigation taken care of, all you have to do is sit back, relax, and sightsee.

"Hi to all my faithful readers." I would like to start my newest trip to Washington DC with you. Share my wife and my loves, dislikes, sorrows, and tears we shed many times as we traveled one of the most incredible cities in the world. We had wanted to go to Washington for some time. I believe people don't realize the grandeur that exists right here in this beautiful country known as America. Probably Washington has all a person could want as far as grandeur, history, political ideals, museums, i could go on and on. But here at the Holocaust Museum we found something that will live with us forever. We saw everything I assure you. But nothing like this incredible museum. Within it lies the truth of human hate for another race for no other reason but just to hate! The hallowed steps will walk you through the lives of the Jewish race preyed upon but Nazi Germany. As we walked through this museum we saw things that brought tears even to my eyes. Pictures of babies, women, children, families, people of all ages who were slain in gas chambers and many kinds of terrible deaths. To horrifying to even say here. But I needed to see the truth so I went on...I walked on to see thousands of old shoes. I mean thousands of all sizes in a section reading what they were my heart skipped a beat. I actually sat down and cried! For they were the shoes of those killed in the gas chambers at Auschwitz and Shoah. I looked again in disbelief but it was real. As you walk further there are many movies depicting the stories of the plight of the Jewish race and the absolute hate the Nazis had for them! Now i want to say something here before I go on. German people are a wonderful people. I was in the country and they treated me as king. They are a loving people with great family values. They are ashamed of the past and what happened during the 2nd World War! There is nothing hateful about German people. The Nazis do not encompass the ideals of Germany! Now to go on. There is a stairway showing pictures of those killed during this climactic time. You will look and see children of all ages, babies, women, young boys, men, I mean everyday people murdered without conscious or caring. I could go on and on my friend but to finalize what brought me to a standstill was standing within a gas chamber!!! Yes there is one there that was actually used to kill many of the beautiful people. All i could do was shake my head in disbelief. There is a great deal more to see friends. I will say this I left there a different man that day. My minds eye couldn't get out of its thoughts the reality i had seen. I have been all over the world. Seen many things. Sang all over met so many wonderful people and enjoyed them all! I have treasured my life to people because we are all of worth! We all have something to give back to the world. I will continue to give back even if it is writing to you here. But most of all my friends never forget we have so much to give one another! God be with you all! And being Italian I leave you with my usual Goodbye... pace e amore..Carl

There is no mistaking the impact the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum has on the mind, body, and soul. From being assigned a number, to seeing the shoes of those who died, it is one that really resonates. However, I did expect the museum to have more artifacts, which they might have added more from the last time I went (in June 2018) but nonetheless, highly recommend.

A place that holds the horror of the past. It’s beautifully laid out even though it contains horrific times of what people had gone through and suffered under other people. It’s a must see. If you’re visiting DC you need to go visit the Holocaust Museum. Be prepared to have your eyes and hearts and minds filled with exhibits and images that will question how can a human hate another human even children so much that they are willing to perform monstrous and heinous acts upon them just because they are different and in the name of God. It’s scary then and scary now.

We often are not able to take in a perspective of a historical event, even terrible ones like the holocaust. This museum offers a unique perspective into a world event. The prisoner shoe display, as well as the children's artwork (the Nazis had them draw happy pictures) were very impacting to me. You can easily spend hours here, especially if you want to truly get a bit of understanding of the events that scarred the European, and world history.
