Owner description: A 19-foot bronze statue of perhaps the most esteemed founding father sits beneath a columned rotunda in the style of the Roman Pantheon.
Reviewed 31 May 2018

The stairs are many, but once you make the climb you won’t be sorry. It’s a beautiful statue and the history that surrounds it is just amazing

What an awesome feel seeing this memorial! Just as awesome as Lincoln's Memorial. This should be on everyone's bucket list.

This monument is located beside the tidal basin and it provides a lovely view of the city. Take the time to visit this monument if you are in DC. We visited during a moonlight tour and it was absolutely beautiful, one of our favorites on the trip. Check out the memorial, but also take time to just sit on the steps and take it all in. A truly great spot to take in the city.

Go see it at night when it is all lit up. You get a great view of the Washington Monument also. Of note,the Jefferson Monument had the worse bathrooms. Half of them were out of order and those that worked were very dirty.
