Stopped in here to get reprieve from a sudden torrential downpour. We were walking from the Lincoln Memorial towards the WWII memorial when it suddenly started raining and thundering very intensely. While we wouldn't have thought to come otherwise, we enjoyed the simplicity of the memorial and its open layout, which allows you to look out on all sides. A... 更多
Easy to bypass, there really is nothing to see. It's been recently renovated, so at least it doesn't look shabby. But compared to Washington's many grand monuments, this ranks waaayyy down the list.
Spent some time in D.C. recently and enjoyed seeing many of the memorials and monuments along The Mall, including the District of Columbia War Memorial located south of the Reflection Pool and east of the Korean War Memorial. This memorial is a small circular shaped temple, supported by doric columns and a small dome and commemorates the 500 citizens of... 更多
I've always wanted to see this one and our tour group walked right by it on the way to the WWII memorial, so I had a chance to see it. Nothing outstanding or gaudy, just a nice column-and-dome memorial. And that's what makes it so great, especially in comparison to the gaudy WWII memorial. This one ranks right up there... 更多
I don't have much to add to what others have said. This wonderful little, well-worn memorial/bandstand gets little attention, although it's garnered increasing respect in recent years. A memorial to the DC residents who died in WWI, John Phillip Sousa conducted the Marine Band here. While I do think DC could use a memorial to WWI more broadly, I hope... 更多
The DC War Memorial stands in the shadows of its neighboring monuments and memorial giants. Probably due to its location, size, and simplicity, I have never once passed this sight and seen any people admiring this beautiful domed temple. Upon visiting, you'll notice its actually dedicated to those lost during WWI - which certainly is befitting its own rightful memorial.... 更多
This is not a must to see compare to others memorials but it is a nice add on to your agenda while visiting the National Mall. It is a small memorial tucked in between the woods just not far from the World War II memorial and just a cross the street from Martin Luther King Jr. 's memorial. Stop by... 更多
Personally, this is my favourite monument that I've visited in DC. It is in a discreet part of the Mall, it is simple and relatively small, but has such a universal presence. I sat on its steps for a while. It exudes peace and contemplation, despite its somber military dedication.
