  • Have students dress appropriately. The Memorial is an outdoor venue—we suggest bringing hats, sunglasses, sun block and bottled water.
  • Please call if you are running late or need to cancel your visit.
  • Give students the opportunity to use the restrooms and get a drink of water before starting the tour.
  • After your visit, have students write a poem or essay about their experience at the Memorial. They are welcome to share their work on our visitor blog.
