very interesting, really intense and disturbing, visit in the morning and then in the afternoon just chill somewhere as your brain will hurt and need to rest!
Really powerful piece of history worth visiting. Although i could have done with some of the tourist idiots doing smiling selfies on the balcony on the spot where MLK was slain! Urg!
This museum is not to be missed. At the Lorraine Motel you have an opportunity to peek into MLK's motel room which is displayed as it would have been the morning of his assassination. Standing exactly where he was shot is emotional. It is somber and a nice moment to pay your respects. The civil rights exhibits inside the museum... More
It was under refurbishment when we visited so only got to do half of the museam but it was very interesting and moving. We were a little disturbed that you could actually walk onto the balcony where he was shot and we decided not to do that but pay our respects from beneath, well worth a visit though.

Even though half go the museum is under renovation, you can still stand on the balcony where Dr. King was assassinated and see the boarding house where James Earl Ray stayed and committed the murder. A truly moving experience.
I actually thought this would be rather boring, but decided to take an out of town visitor to see it. I completely underestimated what this museum was really about.
