We arrived with 15 minutes before the Visitor centre closed. We managed a quick look round and picked up a map of the Historic Site. We had a wander around saw Martin Luther King jr's resting place. Had we looked more closely at the map there was more we could have seen. What we did see was very interesting. Would... More

It was very surreal to have had the opportunity to enter the childhood home of one of the greatest humanitarians in human history. I am happy to know that this site is being preserved for the enjoyment and education of posterity.

This is a must-see if you come to Atlanta. There are various sites to visit in a small campus-like setting...including the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church, the graves of Martin Luther King Jr and Coretta Scott King, and a museum that traces the life of MLK Jr. Wow! Signage of the Site could be better, and it is hard to find... More

We were grateful to finally see this. Sitting in the old Ebenezer Baptist Church and listing to MLK recorded voice was a special time.

To see the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his wife Corretta was so eye opening. They truly loved each other and loved humanity. The exhibits were first hand owned items of the Kings. There were a lot of people there but there was so much to see until one area was never really taken over by a... More

Dr. King's museum and house tour get better and better each time I experience them. Perhaps the exposure of the movie SELMA has helped me to fully appreciate the work of Dr. King and countless others, nevertheless, the historic buildings and artifacts fully seal my feelings of gratitude towards the life and mission of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr..

Take the guided tour of MLK's childhood-home! It was really interesting - and the guide we had was both charming and knew a lot a bout MLK and his family.
