  • Visiting this historic site was so surreal. Standing in the sanctuary where Martin Luther King Jr. stood was amazing to me.  more »
  • When I arrived in atlanta, and I could see that the city was a city where the black population had very featured, I was immensely curious to experience a little more of your culture, with predominantly Protestant religious, just wanted to watch a cult batista, and could not have been better. My best experience without a shadow of a doubt.

  • RIp to ML king for leaving us a church with God building bible words!! Powerful man who seen the future before it came!! In God we trust let satin bust in he'll amen!!!
  • Atlanta Movie Tours has an Atlanta Heritage Tour. Ebenezer Baptist Church was a stop on the tour. My group was warmly welcomed by the female staff member. She provided an overview of the building and told us that the sermon playing in the sanctuary was Dr. King's "Drum Major Instinct". This was the final sermon of Dr. King before his assignation. We also found out that they keep the sanctuary clock stopped at 10:30 a.m. This represents Dr. the time of Dr. King's funeral on April 9, 1968. The church is a very unique experience. It transports you back to the late 60's.
  • Lovely church. I enjoy the sermons and choir. I just wish the church kept the tourists to visit at the other historical site and not the newer site. People come in videotaping and just get up to leave when they have had enough of the black folk. It's so disrespectful as I should be able to worship without this distraction. I immediately become angry when that happens and I shouldn't feel that way in the house of the Lord. I'll be looking for a new church until they do something about this.
  • An integral piece of Atlantan and American history. The church Martin Luther King was raised in and later preached in. A gentleman gives the powerful I Have A Dream speech and does an amazing impersonation.
  • Excellent historical site that is a dedication to Martin Luther King, Jr's family. The church is preserved in the way MLK would have seen it as a preacher there, and upon entering visitors listen to his powerful voice echoing around the congregation area. It's a powerful site.

Where to stay in Atlanta

Most of Atlanta's top hotels cluster in a downtown area with an easy-to-remember name--the Hotel District. The city's political and commercial hub, this area offers quick walking access to most major attractions. Another good area for boutique hotels and rental apartments is the ever-expanding Midtown, with proximity to most of Atlanta's big-name museums and theaters. If you're looking to save some money on accommodations, explore options in the more economical chain hotels outside downtown; from there, you can take the city's public transport to centrally located attractions and activities.
