“Fantastic Memorial”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2011

My family and I visited the memorial within a bike tour of DC. I am so glad that we were able to visit this one...which we might have missed otherwise. Beautiful memorial which was very well thought out.

“One of the best of the monuments”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2011

This seemed to match historical interest with a sense of dignity, that reflected the life of an effective much loved president- it is a sorry reflection of our shallowness that due to his infirmity he would never have been elected in 2011.

Beautiful location on the tidal basin. Go in nice weather; its a nice place to spend an hour or so. Very close to MLK memorial.

“Excellent summary of a great president's life.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2011

We find the memorial a very fitting tribute to FDR. He is shown in a wheel chair, not often done, and the inclusion of Fala a nice touch. It presents a fitting summary of his life.
