“Beautiful memorial”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

I saw this memorial on a church group visit to DC monuments. It was beautiful. The water features, the quotes, the attention to detail, the scupltures. I highly recommend. I've been in and around DC for quite some time and had never visited this memorial. It is an on the list item that I have all of my out of town family experience. Highly recommend.

“Under visited but the best memorial”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

I was the only one there, it is a wonderful monument to his presidency and well worth the walk. Divided into each of his terms it depicts his work and his time in a moving and uplifting way.

“Unexpected treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

This was a real treat. It was both educational and inspirational. The memorial consists of a number of phases showing the many issues and challenges of this amazing period (1933-1945), and left one feeling good about the U.S. and inspired by this amazing leader.

We saw this at night and it truly is a beautiful and moving memorial. Please do not miss seeing this. My photos did not turn out like I hoped, maybe next time.
