Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial National Memorial


A man of conscience; the freedom movement of which he was a beacon; and his message of freedom, equality, justice and love.


The Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial is located in downtown Washington, D.C. It is roughly halfway between the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument along Independence Ave.

VIA METRO: From the Smithsonian metro station, walk west following Independence Ave. Cross 17th Street at the World War II Memorial, and bear left to continue following the sidewalk along Independence Ave. At the next traffic light, cross the crosswalk to the entrance of the memorial.

Additional parking is available along Ohio Drive SW. Three parking lots are approximately 1 mile to the south along Ohio Drive SW, and at the Paddle Boat parking area along Maine Ave to the east. Stopping, standing, or parking on Independence Avenue is prohibited.
