    The single best monument in the USA. His momentous ambition and is met only by his self-reflection; recognising his laws could one day be barbarous and need modernisation. Jefferson is inspirational.

    What a nice place to take friends, family and visitor. If you go to D.C. Don't forget to go to Thomas Jefferson. I'm a big fan of Thomas Jefferson, I like all his art works, his saying & architectures

    Another fabulous spot I've shot many weddings. Sunset/dusk the light is perfect for shooting from the steps out to the Monument with the Tidal Basin as backdrop. Be mindful of the rangers ;-)

    Take the tour from Bike the Sites and ride your bike right up to the steps. Lots of fun and you easily explore all the monuments in less time than it takes walking or bussing.

    Beautiful place to be during the summer nights. If you look directly across the Potomac River, where the Jefferson statue looks towards the water, you can see the White House directly across.

    Tourists always forget about this beautiful place because it's a little bit aside from other monuments, but you MUST see it, I'm 100% sure

    President Roosevelt asked the Commission of Fine Arts about the possibility of erecting a memorial to Thomas Jefferson. Construction went from 1938-43, & Roosevelt laid the first cornerstone himself.

    Public transportation and cabs are hard to come by here. Beautiful site, with a view of the White House, from the top of the steps. Walk from here to the MLK Memorial if you are looking for a cab.

    TeamTRI Tip: Bask in the brilliant writings. Enjoy the majestic view and architecture. Then head down below the memorial to enjoy the special tributes and exhibits to Jefferson that many miss.

    This is a bit out of the way being on the backside of the Basin - but is a must see monument.

    My favorite monument in DC. Super quiet with very few people every time I go. Plus it looks like the Pantheon in Rome

    Designed by John Russell Pope, the Memorial was built between 1939 and 1943. The bronze statue of Jefferson, added in 1947, is 19ft tall and weighs 10,000lbs.

    The best spot to view it is from the paddle boat basin. In summer, rent the boat & paddle around the lake. It's beautiful!

    Before the Jefferson Memorial was built, this landing was a popular beach for locals right on the tidal basin.

    Built by the Irish in 1677. It surely stands the test of time. And continues to teach the lesson that Jefferson was a giant man.

    미국 역사이 있어서 상당히 중요한 인물이죠? 토마스 제퍼슨. 그의 기념관입니다. 벗꽃이 만개할 때가 더 좋다고 하는데, 아주 더운 여름에 방문했지요.

    Interesting fact: For the official dedication, a plaster statue was installed due to a metal shortage during WWII. It wasn’t until four years later that the bronze statue was completed and installed.

    go here at night, with the moon reflecting off the water. ask a friend to waltz with you on the marble--it feels magical, like you're dancing at a palace. the security guards may laugh and give advice

    It is a major component of the city's monumental plan. Noted work of multiple architects such as John Russell Pope, Otto R. Eggers and Daniel P. Higgins, and F.L. Olmsted Jr.
