This is a lovely, moving memorial, especially at night. The sound of the water fountains, etching of the bread lines, FDR's dog.

Being a dog lover, I wanted to see the statue with the dog (it's larger than life size). This was a little off the typical memorial path, but worth the uber fare. Be prepared to walk and read. The quotations carved in the stone will really make you understand FDR's stance on war and poverty. Even my teenager was impressed.... More

Wow, yes there is a lot to say about FDR, but the might be said for 5-10 others. The Big memorial,is a tribute to all things Big, including Big Government. There may not be room for another memorial this big.

Walking through this memorial is both informative and a trip through history. The memorial is beautiful and I would not miss it when traveling to DC.

I have visited Washington DC countless times, this was our first trip to this memorial. It really is not to be missed. It's a beautiful walk through this President's terms and what he did for our country.

It was a pleasant surprise to see this monument. I Loved the waterfall and one waterfall was broken. It had beautiful statues and it was so peaceful to sit near the monument.

Saw this on a night tour. This was, perhaps my favorite memorial. I would love to go back and see it in the day as I feel there are things I missed.
