This was my second visit; wanted my husband to see it. Plan to spend at least 45 minutes to walk through the different 'rooms' and absorb the words and sounds.

Very unique and innovative memorial. Always a favorite for people of all ages, and a novice or history buff.

Most people who visit D.C. don't even know about the FDR Memorial. It's a little off the beaten path, on the Tidal Basin. Now that the MLK Jr. Memorial has opened close to it, FDR may get some extra visitors. The series of waterfalls are very beautiful and unexpected. Fala is a highlight!

The quotations in the walls are largena and powerful. Then lights and shadows at night make this memorial very beautiful.
