The memorial to the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. opens Monday in Washington, D.C.

Tourists will be able to get a close up look at it all week before the official dedication next Sunday.

President Obama is scheduled to take part in the dedication which marks the 48th anniversary of King's famous "I Have a Dream" speech.

The memorial sits on the National Mall near the tidal basin and in between monuments honoring Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson.

It includes a 30-foot high sculpture of King and a 450-foot-long granite wall inscribed with 14 quotations from the civil rights leader.
