Visited on a beautiful, clear, fall day. Great views from all directions. The elevator operator was delightful. The gift shop operator had plenty of knowledge about the area.

Lots of history packed into this area. The monument is easy to find with a small gift shop located on the property.

Wow, what an amazing place. The sheer size of this monument is amazing, and that's without traveling to the top to see the surrounding views. (for a fee) A great place to picnic and to walk around.

We had a clear day when visiting the Monument so the view from the platform was awesome. Interesting museum.
