Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial
This monument is not only a memorial to the nation's 32nd president, but also to the people of his time. The monument stretches along the Tidal Basin with four outdoor gallery rooms and is connected by granite passageways. Each room exhibits aspects of Franklin D. Roosevelt's terms in office. The second room, for example, depicts the Great Depression with statues waiting in a bread line. Another room contains a statue of Eleanor Roosevelt, the only memorial to honor a First Lady. The monument also features waterfalls and pools.
Great for the entire family. The complimentary walking-hourly tours given by park rangers are a must. I would recommend it for the entire family. The waterfalls look different at night, so if you have time I'd go there different times of the day.
The FDR memorial right next to the Jefferson Memorial is worth the visit.
Be sure to get the Audio Tour handset and journey through FDRs life with the audio guide.
You will find yourself inspired and full of knowledge afterward.
The Memorial itself is a series of statues and displays in a garden like setting next to the Tidal Pool. A must visit in the summer although it can be a bit crowded at time and visiting children in bus loads can ruin the experience.
Unlike the conventional memorials, this one is a winding path through FDR's life. I prefer the type of memorial such as the Jefferson but this was interesting. The cherry blossoms and the dogwood were blooming all around it and it is lit up at night. A must see if you are a WWII buff.
This is a great place to visit. Its not just about FDR its about the world he lived and served the USA in. I never payed much attention to him in History Class but I learned a ton in that hour.
It's worth the extra walk from Jefferson or Lincoln.
This was my son's favorite memorial because of all of the water features. This was by far the most interactive memorial. It is a bit out of the way as compared to the rest of the memorials and monuments but worth the long walk or bus ride.
