The information provided was so extensive that it took my mom, sister, and me ages to get through a room - as it should be, except the museum closed before we could get through all of it. We had to run through the 1970's til present exhibits just to get our cameras back in time.
The rooms are arranged by time period, starting with the history of slavery in North America, and running until the present day. If you're mostly interested in the civil rights movement of the 21st century, you might want to not linger at every stop in the first few rooms as we did - unless of course you have a lot more time.
I learned quite a few new things and enjoyed enhancing what I already knew from these exhibits. And being where Dr. King was shot was sobering. It felt like sacred ground.
I highly recommend visiting this museum to anyone in the Memphis area.
