I recommend this tour for everyone. Dr. Cherry gave her first hand experience about the Parsonage and life during the time Dr. Martin Luther King served in Montgomery. The tour was truly amazing. It was almost as if I were back in time and was actually there with Dr. King when I stepped inside of the Parsonage. It was a... More

My wife and I visited the Dexter Parsonage Museum on our honeymoon and had a fantastic tour. The house provides a fascinating insight into the life of Dr King. We really enjoyed the tour and our fabulous tour guide!!

This was our final visit on our 2 day trip to Montgomery and it soon became the highlight of our stay. Having visited the Rosa Parks museum, and the Freedom Riders museum, we wondered what could better them. Then we met Dr Shirley Cherry. She took us through and around Dr King's house and had us in fits of laughter... More

This was a fascinating insight into MLK as a person, with his furniture and effects all around. We have looked round very many homes, stately and more ordinary. This is in the top few as it is so personal. Dr Shirley Cherry showed us round and brought the whole place to life for us.

Myself and my fiance were in Montgomery for one day and decided to visit the Dexter Parsonage Museum. We both haven't stopped talking about it since as it was an amazing experience. The staff at the museum were all lovely and very welcoming, our guide Victory was an absolute joy who was so knowledgeable and passionate. Victory explained everything in... More

Dr. Cherry is the best tour guide. Learned a lot about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. My favorite part was learning about his prayer in the kitchen.

This was a wonderful tour! Our guide was knowledgeable and thorough and we appreciated his time so much! There is a slight fee of $7.50 that we didn't know about in advance, but it was definitely worth every penny! From the second you step into the house, you're transported back to the time Dr. King and Coretta lived there. Everything... More

Our guide (unfortunately I can't remember her name) was absolutely amazing. It seems like she met all the key players in the civil rights movement so she just has unbelievable stories to tell.
