Great monument. Currently under construction. You can not visit. You can still take pictures from a distance.
Definitely a nice and soothing place. So much peaceful place. National mall can be seen and Jefferson memorial itself has historical values.
Don't forget the museum below with the gift shop
Wish it wasn't under construction.
Since it is being remodeled the geese have the run of the grounds.
