“Beautiful and Classy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2011

Truly a great memorial, I'm glad one for Dr.King was finally created! The marble is so beautiful and you can see the Jefferson memorial directly across the tidal basin!

Great location at the National Mall and wonderful views. This is a great tribute and legacy to the wisdom of civil rights. A must see and inspiring memorial.

“Very Moving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2011

It was wonderful to see the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial the day before the official dedication. Many people were enjoying the memorial and the beautiful Saturday. I was happy to see the relief of MLK is imposing, and captures his dignity. The quotes carved into the walls on either side of the memorial are worth reading and renewed my faith in America during this time of recession and unemployment.

“Simply Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2011

This was one of the sites that I was determined to visit! The likeness of MLK is shocking...the creator did a wonderful job executing the vision. Long overdue but happy that this civil rights leader is placed among other great US Leaders!

“excellent design/structure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2011

PROS: attended the dedication; area is well appointed;
CONS: the grounds surronding the entrance will hopefully be better maintained than they are at this time.
