New expanded days!
As of April 9th 2014 we will be open Wednesday through Monday until further notice. We remain closed on Tuesdays. Operating hours will remain the same.
The mausoleum's interior is available for self-guided touring at selected times during the day. Please go to the "Operating Hours & Seasons" page under the "Plan Your Visit" link to the left, for more specific information.
Please note that visitors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a chaperone. General Grant National Memorial requires one chaperone for every ten children. Children and students are required to remain with their chaperones at all times.
Did You Know?
ULYSSES S. GRANT, THE MOST ILLUSTRIOUS WARRIOR AND STATESMAN OF MODERN TIMES, THE CAPTAIN WHOSE INVINCIBLE SWORD SAVED THE REPUBLIC FROM DISMEMBERMENT, MADE LIBERTY THE LAW OF THE LAND; A MAN TOO BROAD FOR PREJUDICE, TOO HUMANE TO DESPISE THE HUMBLEST, TOO GREAT TO BE SMALL AT ANY POINT. IN HIM THE NEGRO FOUND A PROTECTOR, THE INDIAN A FRIEND, A VANQUISHED FOE A BROTHER, AN IMPERILED NATION A SAVIOR. - Frederick Douglass
