My husband and I visited the MLK historic site this morning - it is a great place to wander around and you really get a feel for the neighbourhood. We both found it very moving and thought provoking. The exhibition centre is well laid out and interesting. The only thing that was a shame is that the tour tickets for... More

An absolutely fantastic historical site to visit! I would recommend for everyone. It was a rainy day when we went but there was plenty to see and do inside.

We didn't get out of the car as the neighborhood felt a bit sketchy. The buildings were nice and we took pics from the car.

Well worth your time to visit the center/museum, MLK Jr's home and the Ebenezer Baptist Church where he preached. The staff is very helpful and everyone I met was friendly. Be sure to get there early enough to get tickets to tour the home (only 15 people tour it at a time); our tour guide was knowledgeable and made it... More

This historic site is worth the visit. There is so much to see from the visitor center to the fire station, birth home, memorial site and museum. There is so much history and you can feel it in the streets where he grew up and these sites. My teenage son learned a few things as well. Although all sites are... More

Fortunately, I was able to see the final resting place of Dr. Martin Luther King and Corretta Scott King, as well as his home and his church. I believe that everyone who travels through Atlanta should take the time to go to this memorial and... More
