Very moving experience. It is open to the public during the day. There are speeches/sermons from MLK playing on a continuous loop. Beautiful church. Free admission; there is a donation box.

We went for a short visit to this church and it brought back vivid memories of the day that we lost one of our greatest Americans. Mr.MLK. May he rest in peace and never be forgotten.

Beautiful church and gardens. We enjoyed looking at the inside of this church. It was interesting when we compared it to the little Ebenezer Church and got to see how big this congregation has grown.

I had heard for years about this church and it truly touched my heart to visit here. It is well maintained and highly respectful of Martin Luther King and his family. This is an important place to visit in Atlanta.

It gave me goosebumps to be in the church where both Martin Luther King Jr and his father ministered. I felt privileged to be there. This is something for all ages. It is important to remember the legacy of MLK, Jr.
