“I didn't know this was here”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Just North of the more well known memorials is a 20 minute walk through the FDR memorial. It was filled with sculptures and quotes and fountains and information. Then you're at the Jefferson Memorial. So don't skip this one.

“Well executed and easy to enjoy”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

This is one of my favorite memorials here in DC. The faux rock structures suggest power and integrity. There are all of these corners to explore where you can find bronze plaques with quotes from his speeches, etc. It's all good stuff. This memorial is well located, easy to get too, and a great place to visit when the weather is nice. Good access for the handicapped. This is also a good spot for the kids to burn off some excess energy, as there is plenty of room for running around.

“So many great accomplishments and quotations”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

The outdoor displays of FDR's famous quotations and their context created a strong impression and sparked an interest to read about his four terms as President.

“Educational”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is perhaps the most involved memorial I have ever seen. It is not just a building, but a walk through a life and time. Highly recommended.
