Try to contain your tears when you see the moving pictures of Dr. King with wife, Coretta.
Simple museum but with so much history and lessons for those who visit it... A touching place.
Very good educational experience.
You have to walk a little bit from the nearest MARTA station but once you get there, all sites are close by. The center, the park, the church, the house, the firehouse...
I have a DREAM! Celebrate 50 years! #ATL #Atlanta
If you go in the Visitor's Center you get free tickets for the tour of MLK Jr's childhood home. Really learned a lot about him... that was my favorite part of the Center.
Take a tour of MLK, Jr. birthplace, tomb, and historic Ebenezer Baptist Church. This is a life changing experience, and a must visit place in Atlanta.
My heart broke to see the power of that humble carriage for Dr. King's funeral procession...with 200,000 mourners. To live in Georgia and not experience the lessons taught here are social ignorance.
This is a MUST!!! Take your kids to see and learn about history.. I absolutely LOVED IT!!!
I love this place. Full of knowledge.
