This is a wonderful thing to see, especially on a Saturday or Sunday when guest "bell ringer" plays beautiful tunes. This was a gift from the Netherlands for liberating the country from Germany occupation

Stopped to see the USMC war memorial (amazing) and noticed this tall rectangle with bells pealing regularly during our visit. Went to investigate and saw this marvelous structure and discovered a bit of the historical bond between NL and the US as thanks for our...More

Situated at the very edge of Arlington cemetery, it requires quite a long walk to get to the carillon. The doors were chained up so it was not possible to go up. No sign of when it is normally open... looked like it would probably...More

This is a strange looking memorial clock which chimes every 15 minutes. It is Pinot very attractive but the bulbs in the gardens in front are lovely

Even though there isn't much to see here, but the sound that comes from these bells are quite captivating for the surrounding area that it sits in.

This was a disappointing visit as the tulips are barely out of the ground, while the cherry blossoms are ready to burst. Wait about 2 weeks to visit and it will be a perfect place to picnic and listen to the lunchtime bell concert.

Right next to the U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial, the Carillon hosts daily automated bell concerts twice a day at noon and 6. Live concerts on Sundays and other times during the summer. Fun location for children to run around. Easy parking. Short drive rom...More

Come by just before the hour so you can hear them too. The gardens around them are a less busy place too. Gives you a quiet break from your touring.
