We have a lot exciting, new and different events planned for the 2017 Season.
First the bad news. The Observation Deck, Rotunda, and Plazas will all be closed for the season. This is to allow workers to remove and replace the miles of mortar joints on in the memorial.
The good news is the grounds and Visitor Center will remain open. Visit our Operating Hours page for details.
