A 19-foot bronze statue of perhaps the most esteemed founding father sits beneath a columned rotunda in the style of the Roman Pantheon.

Thomas Jefferson is one of the greatest figures in the history of the nation. The author of the Declaration of Independence was one of the founding fathers of the United States. A firm believer in equal rights, democracy, education available to all, freedom of religion and separation between church and state, he gave form to the nascent nation still searching for its identity. Besides being a politician, Jefferson was also an architect, a writer, musician, scientist and inventor

Thomas Jefferson is memorialized in this monument along the picturesque Tidal Basin (especially during cherry blossom season). While Lincoln (in his memorial) sits, TJ stands tall, though you might be surprised that the statues of both men are just 19 feet.

If you're interested in learning more about Jefferson's life, you can head to the free exhibit on the lower level called "Light and Liberty."
