“Very moving tribute”
Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

I'm not a particularly emotional man bit this memorial almost had me in tears. A beautiful setting and clearly a lot of thought had gone into the layout and the structures which had been built, especially the New Deal and WWII bits. For full effect walk from the MLK side as the memorial follows a chronological path.

“very impressive place”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

T. Roosevelt was a great president. Maybe the most intelligent and respectable. You have just to read the citations in this memorial to understand and confirm it. Congratulations M. President Respect!!

“Significantly larger than I expected”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

This was neat to see. We didn't originally intend to visit this memorial, but we joined a tour that stopped here and were able to fit in in after all. Its basically 4 large "rooms" - each covering a presidential term. Its filled with waterfalls, stonework, and historical quotes along with statues and other art work.

“Special”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

This is not a President you hear alot about, but 4 terms; lots of history. I thought it was well done, I ended up doing this in reverse but still go the effect. Very educational!
