this was our first stop in atlanta. we had a fantastic time. the museum is small and easy to get around. it gives a good basic background on the history of the civil rights movement and the part MLK played. parking is free as is park entrance.

Great to see Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthplace, the church where he preached and his grave. It gives you an appreciation for what he experienced during his lifetime.

Very informative. Great to see the birth house of MLK Jr and to visit the interactive visitors' center. We tried to get into the house, but the tours were booked for the day (by 1:00 pm).

Great place to visit. Being in the Church was humbling and exciting all at the same time. Everything was close together, the Church, Dr, King's birthplace and burial site, and the museum itself. The images in the museum were awe inspiring and moving. A must see when in Atlanta.

Very Beautiful, and a trip down memory lane!! The place Martin and Coreta King or laid to rest is nice and well done. It was awesome to look at how the buildings at one time were part of well put together community that helped to make change in the Civil Rights Era.
