I was extremely excited to see the General Grant National Memorial, especially since it is the largest mausoleum in the United States. I am a big fan of history and Grant was one of my favorite presidents, but even for those who aren't diehard history...More

We were walking through Riverside Park when we saw Grant's Tomb. Since we had never been there we decided to go. The tomb is acutally part of a larger memorial. Generally from the river you just see the top of the memorial because fo the...More

This is a magnificent memorial that honors our 18th President as well as his legacy of peace and equality while paying tribute to his humble and understated nature. This is not something to occupy a family for hours, but it's worth the time to visit...More

Even though the website states that the memorial is not handicap , it also states that the visitor center is. We found a parking spot across the street ( good luck with that) and got up the sidewalk in front of the memorial. Really impressive...More

Other than knowing that U.S. Grant was the general who led the Union to victory & later became president, that was pretty much my entire knowledge of this kinda under-rated historic figure. It was worth a short subway ride to Upper Manhattan to check it...More

The building that houses Ulysses S. Grant's tomb is impressive. Seeing the actual tomb is difficult unless you want to wait around for the limited hours that it is open. I had better things to do.More

How unfortunate you did not have the time to stop at our visitor center across the street. Many visitors find it an enjoyable, comfortable and informative way to prepare for their visit to the mausoleum. Air-conditioned in the summer and heated in the winter! Since...More

Right across from Riverside Church is this highlight for patriots. Didn't expect to see this at all, and unlike so many other national monuments, RIP President Grant and Julia. Have left other sites maintained by the US Parks service and wondered what they do there,...More

This is adjacent to Riverside Park. It's a beautiful building honoring President Grant and his wife, Julia. It's been here over 100 years. Simple yet elegant. Only takes 30 minutes to tour, however there is a visitor's center across the road and a short movie...More

This memorial is worthy of being in Washington DC. As I stood looking up at it that’s where I felt like I was, not NYC. A gorgeous marble building with huge columns & eagles guarding over the site. Beautiful reliefs painted of Grant & his...More
