Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Everything about this place is awe-inspiring. I could go here every day and not get tired of it. It is an amazing place and I was overwhelmed by it. You should go more than one time at different times of day. It is different each time.

It was great to walk along the reflecting pool towards the memorial and to go inside and stand in front of Lincoln.

Visited as part of a tour. Pretty busy but manageable. Anyone visiting this iconic site expecting it to be deserted will be very surprised. It doesn't take long to view.

This is a stunning memorial. The only thing we didn't know at the time was that there is an elevator!! Definitely would have been helpful for my aging mother.

Certainly a must do while in DC. Definitely add it towards the top of your list as it’s something you won’t want to miss. So peaceful and beautiful. I could have sat on the steps for hours soaking it in (if it weren’t such a chilly day). Can’t wait to bring my kids here to visit.

The best part of my trip to DC was stopping here. It’s actually a lot bigger inside than I was expecting so it was easy to get a good view of the statue even though there was a lot of people in there. The ranger was very nice and answered a question that I had and even shared some additional details about the monument that made it really interesting.

Truly one of the beautiful and graceful views of The Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial. Well maintained. Plenty of history to take in. Day time definitely had plenty of people and night time gave a more personal and solitude vibe. We had a wonderful time.

A glimpse into the history of the US. The unionstates are up above the pillars on the outside and two of Lincoln-s speechs are engraved on the side walls. The vietnam statue and Korean are close by.
