Part of the expansive collection of webpages from the National Parks Service, today’s website takes us on a visual tour of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial in Washington D.C.

Through a short video and images, visitors can explore: 

  • Photos from the soft opening of the Memorial on August 22, 2011
  • Pictures of the Stone of Hope statue
  • Images from the 2013 Day of Service and Wreath Laying at the Memorial
  • Close-ups of the wall inscriptions
  • A brief video tour from the 2011 dedication with excerpts of President Obama’s remarks and students reciting passages from Martin Luther King’s famous “I Have A Dream” speech.

When you are done with your virtual tour, use the sidebar menu to learn more about the park history and more. This website provides a brief look at the memorial and a nice addition to your MLK Day studies.
