I came from Memphis. I wanted to see as much as possible from Rev. King. A must-see, indeed

I went to the MLK JR. Historic Site with my long time friend. We had our young adult children (20 years old) and my nine year old. We had a wonderful time. I learned so much more about MLK, the child and his family than I ever knew. The tour guide who is actually works for the US Dept of Parks was extremely knowledgeable and was able to keep the attention of the younger children in the tour group. The gift shop has many interesting African American books. My son brought an harmonica!! You will not regret this experience. You will leave the tour with even more respect for this monumental man; Dr. King.

This is a wonderful place to visit and provides a great opportunity to wander the historic area of Atlanta. Staff were most courteous and we met some lovely people in all the parts of the attraction. The stories, buildings, photographs and memorials were both educational and also quite moving. It made me feel quite humble reading this mans great achievements and what he stood for. If you visit Atlanta you should go to se this.

We didn't have a lot of time, but we were in Atlanta, and we decided to stop by. We didn't get a chance to go inside or take a tour, but it was really something standing by the Ebenezer Baptist Church and looking at the beautiful memorial where he is buried - truly serene and inspiring.

Our church youth group learned so much during this tour. It was truly very educational for them as well as the adults that were in our group. Will visit again when the opportunity is available.
