“So intersting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

Loved walking through the whole thing. Each area showed different events of his time as president, it was a history lesson as well, the statues were amazing. The saying on the walls reminded me of how great a president he was.

“More than Expected”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

Part of a tour of many memorials at night, it was hands down the most amazing one of the group with regard to scope and segments depicting vairous important moments of his presidency. Artistic and creative set in stunning mature park land. Nice surprise to see Eleanor included in the collection.

“The best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

My favorite Memorial in a beautiful location right on the Tidal Basin, with wonderful views across the water. The memorial is a journey through his years as President, set among trees, walls and water features. Day visits are great for reading all the inscriptions and quotations, as well as for walking around to the MLK memorial and on the Mall. Nights turn this into a totally magical (and very romantic) spot, especially clear, crisp winter evenings. Don't miss this one.

“surprisingly moving”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

This was another attraction that I saw at night and there were several statues of Roosevelt placed in between banks of flowing water falls. Also a statue of Elenor Roosevelt standing in a delightful walk through pathway.
