The observation deck provides views out two windows . There's also a small museum on the 490-foot level. The interior walls are lined with commemorative stones that honor the life of George Washington.
Rising above the National Mall in the heart of Washington, DC, the majestic Washington Monument rises to 555 feet and 5/18 inches tall and is 55 feet wide at the base. Because it is an all-stone structure, it does not sway in the wind.
