Monumental Trivia at Twilight
Monumental Trivia is currently suspended due to COVID-19. Please contact us if you have questions.
Come out to the National Mall for an awesome evening tour where you can explore the monuments, meet new people, and compete to win prizes! The Monumental Trivia tour is perfect for visitors who are traveling solo or looking for a more cost efficient tour than our private tours. It’s also perfect for locals looking for an excuse to get out and have fun exploring their own city!
What’s included on this tour?
After meeting at the Jefferson Memorial, your tour guide and trivia host will lead the group on an efficient 3-hour walking route to see the major monuments and memorials on the National Mall, including:
- Thomas Jefferson Memorial
- Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial
- Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial
- District of Columbia War Memorial
- Korean War Veterans Memorial
- Lincoln Memorial
- Vietnam Veterans Memorial
- World War II 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.
Who is the tour guide?
Monumental Trivia at Twilight is hosted by our team of guides. If you’re looking for a tour led by Rob, the founder of Trip Hacks DC, check out his private tours. Meet a few of our trivia hosts:
