This is one of the sites that comprise the Martin Luther King Jr. National Park. I recommend that you begin your visit with this museum, the King Center, top learn about Dr. King's life and the impact he made before visiting other sites. It's free.

Dr. Martin Luther King is an epic hero of the Civil Rights Movement in the U.S.A.; there were also many, many other people who were crucial to the successes attained during his lifetime and beyond. I'd combine this with touring the other places of his...More

I’ve been to the King Center before—over a decade ago—before I had kids. It didn’t strike me as much then, but with kids of my own now, I’ve come to better appreciate its benefit. We went during a weekday, so the crowds were low, and...More

This review is about the learning experience, rather than the quality of exhibit. On our trip south, we had limited time in Atlanta and an itinerary that included learning about Southern fiction authors. We visited the King Center to add a historical perspective. Our visit...More

I enjoyed immensely the content in the Center, which is complimentary to the Civil and Human Rights museum. Highly recommended

Really interesting subject matter, but we were underwhelmed by how little was made of it. As suggested, it all felt a little dumbed down and I wasn't sure which exhibits (if all or any) were intended for children.

The King Center is a must see! It has so much history and is very educational concerning the civil rights era. The tour is great. You can hear Dr. King’s speeches see films about civil rights, buy souvenirs, see the church he preached at and...More

You know the story but nothing like the experience of seeing it on display. I cannot belive you can see it free of charge. Wonderful visit for all ages. Highly recommend!

MLK has been my hero since I can remember having heroes so I was pretty excited to be able to see this. I enjoyed seeing the exhibits (though the noise level from one TV to the next is a bit distracting, they overlap). The pool...More

When I was there last, there was no charge, but a donation was requested. Well worth the visit either way.
