Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Tours

Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial
The man whose dream changed America lives eternally in Washington DC. The Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial opened in October 2011, a few months after the 48th anniversary of Dr. King’s “I have a dream" speech. Set in the greater National Mall area, the memorial occupies four acres of land in West Potomac Park and looks out over Tidal Basin near the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial.

The site includes both a commanding 30-foot statue of Dr. King and a 450-foot granite inscription wall, featuring 14 excerpts from King's speeches, sermons and other public addresses.

Practical Info

The memorial is located at 1964 Independence Ave SW, the "1964" an intentional tribute to the Civil Rights Movement of the same year. The National Mall never closes, and the memorial is lit at night. There is very limited parking near the site; the best way to access it is by public transportation. The nearest metro stations are Smithsonian and Foggy Bottom (about a one-mile walk away).
Address: Washington DC 20024, USA
