Recommendation

 

Plan about 3 hours for the monument/ museum and the surrounding park.
The stairs up to the monument are steep- take the elevator located to the side of the monument if stairs are an issue.
Go see the changing of the guards which happens exactly on each hour.
The memorial is located on several acres so wear good walking shoes.
Take snacks and water with you, especially if you have young children.
