“Must-see for all DC visitors”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

The new Martin Luther King Jr memorial is a perfect complement to the array of monuments and statues that celebrate the history of the United States. The masonry is a wonderful piece of art - contemporary yet timeless. The words of Dr King are inscribed on the surrounding walls, reminding the visitor why he was a man before his time. A must-see for any visitor to DC.

“Pompous and disappointing”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

It's pompous and diisappointing. The quotations are long and uninteresting. But the sight is great. However, there is no parking and it's a 10 minute walk from the metro.

“Wow!! Beautiful and awe inspiring!”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

The newer Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Monument does the Reverend justice for all he has done for our nation and the Civil Rights movement. The setting is very peaceful. We visited during the day and when lit up at night. Love his quotes all over the memorial! He was such a man of faith and integrity!
