Parking can be tricky especially around his home; the walk from the church to the home is about 2... More

Curators are doing a great job of preserving his legacy. When you step in you can't help but think of the struggle for freedom and equality of all men.

Very interesting and comprehensive "coverage" of the human rights movement and MLK's important role in that significant achievement and era in our history. You may need more time than you probably plan for.

Well put together and a great look at the amazing work MLK did to advance civil rights. I found the entire complex to be organized and easy to explore. Only issue is that the parking was not clearly marked, and we had to circle a couple of times before we realized where the main lot was.
