As soon as my friend and I stepped into the interpretive Centre we were greeted by two fantastic ladies and immediately made to feel very welcome, they even went out of their way to show us around the parsonage before it was time for the official tour. Victory was the lady that showed us around Dr Kings home and although... More

This tour was really interesting and brought chills to our family. Ms. Cherry was an awesome guide and we enjoyed being involved in her tour and history lessons.

I knew some things about Dr. Martin Luther King from what I learned in history classes, so I was not expecting a whole lot from a tour of his home. However, I found the tour to be very surprising and not what I expected at all. It was just Dr. King's home, but I left with a lot of new... More

This tour moved me to tears more than once. Our tour guide, Dr. Cherry, is a well informed, warm, wonderful storyteller who adds much of her own experience to the story of Dr. King and the Civil Rights Movement. I learned about the pastor before Dr. King who helped to set the stage for the Civil Rights Movement in Montgomery.... More

Dr. Cherry is a fantastic guide. She knows the history of the era and brings it alive! She is personable, engaging and can even quiet a crying toddler!

This was my first time in Montgomery Alabama and I was wowed from the moment I went into the Dexter Parsonage Museum. Dr. Cherry and Dr. Valda Montgomery were absolutely wonderful they have a wealth of knowledge between the both of them. The best part is they treat you like your one of the family very courteous. You can see... More

This is more than just a tour or a historic visit, it is an encounter with a wonderful woman who brings alive the story and spirit of Martin Luther King and leaves you feeling challenged to be a person of character, who can stand firm in the face of diversity. We think this tour should be mandatory for anyone visiting... More
