Fodor's Review

South of Downtown, the motel in which Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in 1968 has been transformed into the National Civil Rights Museum, an outstanding facility that documents the civil rights movement through exhibits and clever audiovisual displays.

Must Do

I cannot say enough about this museum. It is truly inspiring. I recommend this to everyone of all ages. The layout is really cool, not to mention the front of the museum is the hotel balcony where MLK, Jr. was assassinated.
