When you first see the statue of the Iwo Jima monument you can't help but be overwhelmed. First, the size, then the meaning of what it portrays brings it all home. Next time I will go there when the museum is open.

A sign on the door says the museum is open from 1 to 4 pm. Unfortunately, we waited a half hour and no one showed up to open the shop. The website says they’re only open Monday through Saturday. It annoys me to no end...More

Don't miss a visit to view this powerful monument that served as the plaster model for the well-known bronze casting in Arlington VA. The detail in the faces of the six soldiers and their equipment is stunning. Stop by the crowded museum and gift shop....More

This is a wonderful memorial. So much to see on the grounds even before going to memorial. Definitely worth the price of headphones. By the way, there are BOGO coupons around town for the headsets.
