The Lincoln Memorial: Honoring Freedom & the 16th President

An awe-inspiring structure, The Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. is one of America's most revered national monuments. Behind 36 Doric columns, representing the 36 unified states at the time of his death, a 19-foot Abraham Lincoln sits in quiet contemplation overlooking The National Mall. On each side of the statue are inscriptions of the Second Inaugural Addess and Gettysburg Address, an homage to Lincoln's oratory brilliance. Honoring the "Great Emancipator," The Lincoln Memorial celebrates the 16th President who led the United States through Civil War to abolish the scourge of slavery.

FAQs

  • are guided tours of the memorial available?

    To enhance your visit, consider a walking tour of The National Mall that includes an in-depth tour of The Lincoln Memorial. D.C. by Foot offers one of the most popular walking tours of The National Mall. Although the walking tours are "pay-what-you-like," they do require a reservation. A full tour of The National Mall,  including The Lincoln Memorial,  typically takes about two hours. 
  • Is the memorial chamber wheelchair accessible?

    Yes. The Memorial's chamber floor, where the Lincoln statue is located, is completely wheelchair accessible. Ramps lead from the street-level of The Mall to The Monument's basement, where an elevator to The Monument's chamber floor is located.
