The design of this Memorial is amazing. We visited at night (I understand that the fountains will be on in a few weeks) and to see all of the columns for each state in lights was a great sight.

We enjoyed visiting the memorial and searching through all of the states to find ours. The architecture at the memorial was amazingly done as well. The memorial is right in the heart of things on the National Mall so definitely try and take a walk...More

I find this area to be very well designed and in warmer weather I bet it's packed with people. Wear comfy shoes because the concrete is a pain in the foot!

As with all that has been created in the DC Mall, this memorial has been created with a lot of thought to reflect WW2

Perhaps we missed it, but I didn't see any plaques or other information to explain the significance of the memorial. It would be good for visitors to have some additional information.

Visited this in March - it was freezing!! So very sad to see how many people’s lives were ended. A good reminder of what war does.

The "Washington DC National Mall, Monuments and Memorials Walking Guide (Washington DC City Walking Guide Series) Kindle Edition" is a decent download for just $3.99. You may want to give it a try.
