“Most Effective”
Reviewed October 16, 2011

No matter what your politics, you will be amazed at this memorial's design and execution. A memorial's purpose is to memorilize the life, the ideas and ideals of the one who is honored; the designersof this memorial did a fantastic job of organizing and illustrating the many varied facets of FCR's life.

“A moving experience especially if you enjoy U.S. History”
Reviewed October 14, 2011

Be sure to look for the "golden" ear tips of Fala and Roosevelt's finger. It is interesting to watch how everyone touches these two while looking at the sculptures.
Read the quotes - those who forget history are doomed to repeat it.

“Must See Memorial”
Reviewed October 1, 2011

The FDR memorial is of the beaten path but well worth it. The longest serving presidents memorial brings to mind the hard times and eventual triumph of the time. All should witness this simple but meaningful memorial.

“Very Peaceful”
Reviewed September 27, 2011

This covers a bit of ground, you just keep walking and wandering thru it, but it is very relaxing. the water falls and how its set up is very peaceful. It was a overcast day when we were there so i bet on a sunny day its even better!!
Very good Memorial
