How do you describe this in a few words? Overwhelming. It was a hot morning and after the walk to this, I was a little cranky, but when you walk in and see the statue of Lincoln that you have seen so many times in pictures, well, it's hard not to be moved.
You need to have the right frame of mind when you are here. Understand that Lincoln is a towering figure to Americans, but to most foreign tourists, this is just another been-there-done that place. People will run in, take a picture, shout at the kids and ran out. Just be ready to put them out of your mind.
The displays in the lower level on Lincoln were very informative, but given that it was a hot, humid day, the air conditioning in the gift show was very welcome. Standing in front of the monument and looking back at the Washington monument was very moving. If it wasn't so darn hot, I could have spent an hour just standing there. But I'm sure I don't have to tell anyone that this is a must-see for everyone.
