  • Nice for family. In the vicinity of Ebenezer Baptist Church, onsite Marta vintage bus, other historical homes, the memorial center for Dr. King Jr and his wife, the sidewalk of fame etc. 
  • A site where we discover the tomb of Dr. Martin Luther King and his wife, next to the Church where the reverend was preaching.

  • Breathtaking! I went on the anniversary of Mrs. Coretta Scott King birthday. Her daughter Bernice was there, and they celebrated her birthday with song, beautiful dance and a variety of art expressions. Lively conversations, a variety of individuals from all walks of life. We had a very good time.
  • The King Center is not the average museum. It's unique aura draws thousands of people in every year for a reason. My experience visiting the center was awesome! The exhibits, pictures, displays and everything in it relating to the movement is too much for words. One thing that stood out to me was the significance of peaceful protesters Dr. King and Gandhi. Overall it's so glorious! You go there, fill yourself up history and knowledge, then leave amazed and speechless. Visit the Kings Center, don't miss this opportunity of a lifetime!
  • Greetings All! The King Center for non-violent and social change remains a beacon of light in a dark world. A comprehensive archive which chronicles the stories of our struggles in America is one of the many offerings of the King Center. I was honored to work with Mrs. Coretta Scott King during my college days in the early 90's and found her to be an invaluable resource, intelligent and an anthropologist of all things pertaining to struggle and overcoming in the 21rst century. ASE! All Power to our People.
  • Very interesting but was a little sad that we couldn't go in the house because of house repairs
  • Revisited in 2013 following an earlier visit in 1998! Found a great change to the area! It is greatly improved! Originally just MLK tomb now together with his wife! A wonderful exhibition shows the work undertaken and still in progress following MLK's ethos! A must to visit!
