About the tour

Please note that each part in this series of tours is designed to be a stand alone tour. I.e. it's not necessary to have seen Part 1 to enjoy Parts 2, 3, or 4. Please join Terry for an inside view of the World War II Memorial. Dedicated in 2004 , it honors the 405,000 Americans who perished fighting for their country during the Second World War. We'll take a close look at the design and symbolism of this memorial. Following our trip inside, we'll walk closer to the Washington Monument (currently closed due to Covid-19 precautions). We'll also have a view of the Capitol and the National Mall, the area where the Smithsonian Institution museums are located.
