National Civil Rights Museum
While speaking on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel in 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. You can relive history here by visiting the balcony and Dr. King's room, restored as it was when he was here to support the Sanitation Worker's strike. Through interactive multimedia exhibits you participate in the civil rights movement and learn its history from the 1600s through Rosa Parks and the freedom riders until today.
I loved the scene. It was historical and worth the miles. Of course, I would go back with friends and family. The last time I went was with friends, and I became very emotional. Someday when my child is older, I plan to him or her also.
Having grown up during the Civil Rights movement,I found it to be excellent!!I It was also very emotional.I took my 24yr old daughter and she said ,Wow Mom!!.I recommend taking the audio tour because it'll really enhance the tour.
i love the civil rights museum. its so educational and interesting. its a great place to go by yourself and just get lost in all the exhibits they have. and its also a great place to take older children in your family. my niece just turned 10 and she asked me to take her and i will soon. i think she will understand some of the museums exhibits now. keep up the good work and this is a must see for visitors from memphis or elsewhere
it is amazing how the museum was able to capture history. lots of video clips and things to look at which were pleasing to the eye. great low price. the only bad thing is that u cant take pictures inside the museum
This was very emotional, but I think every should visit. I can definetly appreciate the history in this place and I am thankful to those that endure those terrible hardships so that we can have some freedom today!!!
I love going to the Museum!!
I have (Native American) danced there on several occ.s and we loved it
The people there are wonderful,very open minded,not judging. The exibits are wonderful, and the vibe you get from Dr. King's room is AMAZING!!
Everyone in the world should come to this place at least once, just to see the things that we have done to each other over the years over something so superficial as what colour your skin happens to be.
Everyone should visit this place, its great for the whole family. It just reminds you how far we all have come in this world, and all the great people that has made it better. The Dream is being lived out now.
