I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was. Kind of haunting and a bit surreal. You end up looking closely at each soldier. Almost gives you a feeling of what it was like to have been there.

This is my pick for the best memorial at the mall. I get goose bumps when I walk by every time. I wish there were ranger stations available in the evening hours for information though.

Another memorial that should not be missed. One can look over the soldier sculptures and envision the horror of war in the smallest of moments. The surrounding landscaping and sitting areas are maintained beautifully and respectively.

Lifelike sculptures truly captures the essence of this war. Really good for both children and adults to see and contemplate the significance of the war

These war memorials really caused me to choke up. There are 19 figures, most for the army, but 1 for the navy and a few for marines. With the tour you get a lot more information and you can appreciate the monument better. There are...More

We went through at night then the next day. It was very powerful..you felt like you were in the rice paddies in Korea at night. The way the (marble) on the ground shown, it looked like water. The lighting at night only enhanced your experience

The statues are so lifelike. A very moving tribute. It was nice to see several vets around telling stories.

Nothing can prepare you for walking along side these larger than life statues. Be sure to add this one to your list right along with the Vietnam Memorial!

This is one of the most beautiful memorials in Washington. The figures in the lawn and the etched figures in the marble behind the figures are absolutely haunting. This is a must see.

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!
