  • Thomas Jefferson Memorial
  • Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial

We play trivia “Jeopardy style”. Over the course of the tour your guide will ask questions and the first person to answer correctly gets a point. However, answer incorrectly and you can’t guess again unless no one gets it right and the host offers up a clue. At the end of the tour the person with the most points wins! Tours start at 6:00pm (6:30pm in June and July). The tour takes approximately 3 hours. Please note that during most months the first half of the tour is before dark.
