People tend to check in during these times:
Every text and statue symbolizes a different aspect of the FDR legacy. If you want to truly experience DC and FDR, read before visiting.
The first memorial with a first lady and a first dog.
Chat with the Rangers. They really know their stuff. Also, this is a great "hidden" site to impress your non-DC friends.
FDR with his superhero cape
Love the waterfalls!
Pay homage to one of the best First Ladies we've had
Lots of quotes from Roosevelt. Take to read them al.
Be sure to stand at the end of "The Breadline" and have your picture taken.
Enter the memorial from the direction of the Lincoln Memorial so you will see each of the sections or "rooms" in chronological order.
FDR's beloved Scottish terrier, Fala, is the only presidential pet honored at a presidential memorial.
This controversial bronze statue of FDR in a wheelchair wasn't added to the memorial until 2001.
Off the beaten path, but a great tribute to America's most ambitious President.
Great man. Great memory.
Most of Roosevelt's quotes are even more relevant today
One of the more serene monuments.
Amazing sculptures, waterfalls, and quotes!
Stay off the rocks

Beautiful in the early evening. Walk through and pet the dog.

My favorite memorial in all of DC. Tip: take lots of pictures! #mco435
Children enjoying the monument.
Coolest of all the monuments.
Sad to see how many visitors - wink, wink millennials - don't understand the monument depicting how impoverished we were, and decide to pose smiling with the statues of those in the food line.
Worst president EVER! Just skip over this one. He is the reason our country is so in debt now. Let's all lean on the government!
I need to do this again at night. Impressive and creative design.
Love the statue if the dog (Fala)...
Worth seeing!! Beautifully done
Restrooms here at both ends of the Memorial.
To avoid the crowds, arrive late afternoon or early evening and remember to bring a camera.
Don't use the bathrooms, they are disgusting.
I share the same middle names as this guy
This is an under-appreciated gem of a monument, and kids love it because there are lots of fountains and rocks to climb on.
This is the most surprising, and all encompassing Memorial at The Mall. It's a little off the beaten path but it's worth the trip.
Great memorial to see at sunset! By far, my favorite memorial along with Lincoln.
Take time through this one. FDR did so much for our country in incredibly trying times. This monument to him is very touching
Woooow!!! Read all tge phrases, nice thoughts
Stroll round the water’s edge taking in the monuments and memorials. The FDR Memorial is a must-see. Alternatively, rent a paddleboat (tidalbasinpaddleboats.com) or do a Potomac River cruise.
One of the best memorials! Love this place!
Try to remember all his thoughts.
