Great quiz! Love the SVG. However, could you add maybe a type-ins for the WWII memorial (tried spelling it with the number 2) and the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial (just Roosevelt Memorial)?

it's really quite beautiful. You should definitely check it out next time you visit Washington DC.

I couldn't as they had shut down access to the tidal basin during cherry blossom season due to coronavirus.

I nominate this for a star, even though as an out-of Washington out-of-USA out-of-the-Americas quizzer it's heinously difficult. But it's educational, and a real work of art too - nice job.

Great quiz, except for the major omissions of the National Museum of African-American History, the National Museum of African Art, and the Hirshhorn (all are also Smithsonian museums, so there are no reasons for leaving these out if the others are included).

I definitely get that. I especially didn't like leaving out the African-American history, American Indian, and Holocaust museums. At some point, I have to draw the line before the quiz becomes impossible. I may still make some changes, though. Thanks!

the NMoAAH is such an eyesore and ruins the view across the Mall from many places.

Are you trying to be funny? You think the WW2 memorial is more poorly designed, less aesthetically pleasing, or more poorly placed than that museum? Ugh.

I agree the black museum is extremely ugly. Why it was not designed like the others so it fit in is beyond me. The WW2 monument is beautiful and fits in.

I liked this quiz a lot (expecially as a DC-area resident), but the omissions seemed odd and arbitrary. It's unclear that there are any criteria for what ought to be included and what oughtn't.

That’s a fair comment. Originally, I planned to do something like “10 most visited,” but as I got into the stats that was problematic. If enough people in the comments lobby for a particular site, I’d be happy to add it.

Understandable you have to draw a line somewhere, I think what people want/like is a mention of it and where and why this "line" is there. (and not just "well, it isn't on the map, so it is not an answer"). Even if you just mention that it is a selection ( without saying what that selection is based on) would be better I think.

Also from and educational standpoint. Those of us that do not know as much about Washington as other people, might get the wrong idea that this is a complete/exhaistive list.

But yea good quiz, interesting map :)

I don't think I've ever actually visited the National Gallery of Art, but if "Air and Space", "American History", and "Natural History" work, then shouldn't "Art" also work?

Nice! Unfortunately, you left out the George Mason Memorial, tucked away along the tidal basin not far from the Jefferson Memorial. It is a simple and attractive location that one stumbles upon by accident unless one happens to be a fan of Mason's, "a man of the first order of wisdom among those who acted on the theatre of the revolution, of expansive mind, profound judgment, cogent in argument (Jefferson)."

This is excellent! FWIW, my favorite landmark is the Einstein Memorial, on Constitution right in front of the National Academy of Sciences, and just a short walk NE of the Lincoln Memorial. Beautiful statue with wonderful quotes.

If we're talking about Smithsonian omissions shouldn't we also add the Folger Smithsonian Library too?

I’ve visited DC many times and never knew that FDR & MLKJ had memorials. They definitely deserve them, but it really makes me wonder why we can’t get James Madison a memorial!

Not enough room for all the Presidents. Go to Montpelier.

Montpelier is nice, but we can’t get a memorial for the man that wrote the Bill of Rights?

I agree you need to check the type-ins and expand it IMO. I think I wrote World War two memorial and it rejected it. Smithsonian really should work for all of them in that cluster; at least I as a native have always lumped them together that way. I wrote King memorial and rejected. Most clues here in Jetpunk tend to accept partial or general answers vs. precise names.
