Fodor's Expert Review Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site and Birth Home

Sweet Auburn, the Old Fourth Ward, and East Atlanta Fodor's Choice

The modest Queen Anne–style residence is where Martin Luther King Jr. was born and raised. Besides items that belonged to the family, the house contains an outstanding multimedia exhibit focused on the civil rights movement.

A limited number of visitors are allowed to tour the house each day. Advance reservations are not possible, so sign up early in the day.
