Washington Monument Tours

Washington Monument
Erected in honor of the nation’s first president, the Washington Monument is the tallest building in Washington DC, reaching 555 feet (169 meters) high. The white, marble obelisk is also one of the capital’s most famous structures, made even more remarkable when seen with its mirror image reflected in the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool.

The Basics
At the Washington Monument—one of DC’s most visited and photographed—you can admire it from street level and then take an elevator to its top and enjoy the panoramic view. The monument is included on many guided sightseeing tours of DC, and is in close proximity to other attractions on the National Mall. Bike, Segway, and hop-on hop-off bus and trolley tours let you see many monuments in less time, and can help make the vast scale and number of sights in the capital more manageable.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Washington Monument is a must-see for all first-time visitors to Washington DC.
  • Entrance to the monument requires a free ticket. Reserve tickets in advance online or via phone, or pick up a same-day ticket at the nearby Washington Monument Lodge.
  • Washington DC can have extreme weather conditions. Check the forecast and dress accordingly.
  • Distances between monuments can be longer than anticipated, so comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
  • The monument is fully accessible to wheelchair users.

How to Get There
The Washington Monument is located in the center of the National Mall, on 15th Street NW between 15th Street and Madison Drive NW. It is easily accessible by bus, metro, or bike, and on foot from many of DC’s major attractions. Driving is not recommended, as parking in the area is extremely limited.

When to Get There
The Washington Monument is open daily from 9am to 5pm except on July 4 and December 25. The last entrance is at 4pm. Washington DC is always busy, yet spring and fall typically offer slightly smaller crowds, pleasant weather, and colorful foliage.

See the Washington Monument in a Different Light
Come evening, many monuments in Washington DC are artfully lit, highlighting the drama and craftsmanship of their construction. A nighttime tour of the Washington Monument enables you to see the structure with historical context and to appreciate the architecture with artistic illumination.
Address: Constitution Avenue at 15th Street, Washington D.C., USA

Washington DC After Dark

Washington DC After Dark

star-4
There's a certain magic to Washington DC that can only be experienced at night. It's a time when the powerful Lincoln Memorial is bathed in soft white light, and the Washington Monument, Capitol, and White House appear even more grandiose. Along with a knowledgeable local guide, take a tour of Washington DC well after the sun has gone down, and feel the buzz, magic, and pulse of America's capital by night.
