Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial - Review

Lawrence Halprin is the famous architect of the Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) Memorial. The 32nd president of the USA who served four terms in office has been honoured by dividing the place into 4 symbolic rooms. Statues and paintings depicting his life and history as an American President adorn the walls. The exhibits involve several major epochs in history including the Great Depression and of course World War II.

The red stone building is unique due to the fact that it was one of the first places of interest that were made accessible by wheelchair. Given FDR’s personal life, this gesture was quite fitting and necessary. Eleanor Roosevelt’s bronze statue also enhances the place. It is a very popular tourist attraction and the memory of the beloved president still remains fresh here.

  • This was one of my favorite places around the Washington Mall. FDR was a great man, and an exceptional president. Whether or not you agree with his politics you have to admire his accomplishments. This memorial pays homage to him and to Eleanor as well. There is beautiful architecture and stonework throughout. Many of his more memorable quotes are elegantly placed throughout the memorial. He was an eloquent, empathetic man and has no rival among 20th century presidents for his impact to the United States, with the possible exception of Teddy Roosevelt. The memorial progresses through his 4 terms as president chronologically. Each section is full of history and is beautifully done.

  • We did the Hop-on-Hop-off bus tour and saw this in the twilight tour. When we got there, the sun had already set. I'm going to give Matthew, the tour curator, did an excellent job on the entire tour. My favorite part was the FDR memorial. He was very passionate and informative. I highly recommend if you don't know the history of FDR, that you consider a guided tour of the memorial. Seeing it at night was real neat too.

  • The FDR Memorial is THE BEST memorial in DC. There is no other memorial that is this great. It is organized in a timeline of his terms and it shows all his most famous quotes (which so many are so amazing). There are statues and waterfalls all along the way. It is so beautiful and empowering. This is a MUST SEE when visiting DC.

  • This is absolutely the best memorial I have ever been too!! Well design~ All the status are beautiful. The stone are so artistic. All the quotes on the stone are so inspiring!! I can stay there for hours and take lots of pictures. Definitely a to go place when you are in Washington D.C.!!

  • This place is absolutely stunning. A great tribute. The work put in to the design clearly shows through. When I was there there were quite a few schools there running around. It didn’t bother me but if you like peace and quiet it might be better to visit during the earlier hours of the day. Otherwise, plan on spending at least an hour hear as there’s a lot to see.
