What a great experience to see where the King family lived and contemplate everything these four walls have witnessed. Listening to Dr. King’s recording in the kitchen made the tour for me.

Friendly because everyone there is so nice! Sad because of what MLK was forced to endure, and because everything on display is from 50+ years and a bit tired. Tour includes a 20 minute film and 20 minute or so tour of the parsonage home....More

Very glad that we got the chance to come to the parsonage. It is 7.50 for 12 and above. 5.50 for 6 to 11. After this stop, go by Dexter King Memorial Church.
