Book your visit for Martin's house early because there is a lot of persons who want to do it. It is very interesting, a lot of history there

We did a walking tour of downtown Atlanta. We walked down historic Auburn Ave and found ourselves in the midst of history.

“I cried”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

I didn't plan on visiting this site, but I am glad I did. I learned so much about the shocking and shameful history of the years explored, and the personalities who worked to end it, in this wonderful museum. The residential area around the museum is also lovely to explore. I must-visit when in Atlanta.

“Emotional learning experience”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

The site gives you a comprehensive view of Dr. King's life, accomplishments,and legacy. This was an excellent experience. It was great to see people of all nationalities, races, and walks of life there enjoying the site. It's lets you know we are on the way to the world he fought so hard to see.
