“Amazing president, tasteful memorial”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

It both captured the hardships of American's during his presidency and his words of wisdom well. You also have a nice view of the tidal basin a pleasant walk during the day. I recommend going during the Cherry Blossom Festival, the tress and the air make for a pleasant stay.

“A great place to learn about President Roosevelt”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

The memorial highlights the physical handicap that this president overcame. The memorial is well thought out and the presentation is excellent. Out of the way but worth the walk!
