Monumental Trivia at Twilight
Monumental Trivia is a seasonal tour that runs March through October. If you’re visiting in the off-season, take a look at our private tours which run year round. Otherwise, check back in the winter for the 2020 Monumental Trivia tour schedule.
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! This public walking tour is perfect for visitors who are traveling solo or looking for something a more cost effective 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. Trivia questions will be a mix of history and current events. At the end of the tour the person with the most points wins!
Tours usually start at 6:00pm (6:30pm in June and July). The tour takes approximately 3 hours. Please note that during most months it is primarily before dark.
