Closed for three years and millions of bucks of upgrades and new security facilities, you can now visit the iconic structure. Of course, to get in you’ll have to pass thru all kinds of new bleeps and clicks.

You can now ride the upgraded elevators and/or hike the 897 steps to the top at 555 feet. Starting October 10, you can order free tickets for tours beginning October 19. The monument is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m, and daily except December 25. For more info, www.npr.org/2019/09/19/761868410/our-long-3-year-wait-is-over-the-washington-monument-reopens
