Great place for taking a tragic moment in history and turning it into something positive. The museum is a bit pricey at first glance but worth every penny with the extensive exhibits they have available. The room preserved exactly as left by MLK on the day of his death is eerie.over 4 years ago

Very worth it, but it takes a long time. Lots of standing and reading. We didn’t take the audio tour, and I sort of regret it. You not only see the Lorraine Motel, but also the boarding house where James Earl Ray allegedly shot from. The tour has two parts. First you walk through the building attached to the Lorraine and then through a tunnel to the boarding house. Cameras aren’t permitted except outdoors but there is a camera check. Very deep and moving at the parts where you see the balcony where he was assassinated. Absolutely intriguing.over 5 years ago
I went there back around 1993; My ex had some friends there; real nice folks and they took us there; My girls were real young at the time and I wanted to go there and see it; One of the things I remembered about this place is that primarily the area around that motel was real spooky; It’s like NOTHING has changed from 1968 till then. I really want to go back there and enjoy it without folks interrupting and all.over 6 years ago
I went here with my daughters 4th grade class. The kids loved it. It held their interest for as long as anything. For me, it was moving and filled with a myriad of emotions. It covers not only the American civil rights story, but it has sections devoted to other civil rights struggles.over 6 years ago
