I remember this Memorial being built–we’d eagerly watch the progress each time we visited downtown. It is located on the National Mall, between the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial. In the center of the Memorial is a large fountain surrounded by pillars representing the states and territories and the District of Columbia at the time of World War II.
The Memorial is open 24 hours a day, but our favorite time to visit is at night. Check out this website before you visit to help you understand the Memorial more:
