  • My Kindergarteners loved it. We were on the grounds for 1.5 hrs, but I wish we had more time. The center had ample restrooms and we had our snack at the rose garden. Excellent field trip!
  • I wanted to give ths place 2 stars only because it needs to renovated bad. The exhibits are lacking donations and materials. The items they do have are old and need to updated or replaced. A lot of the informative displays are peeling off the walls. They need a lot of money to reinvent the entire place. The best part is the outside which is nicely kept, but it also needs more out there to be reflective of the time, his life in Atlanta, or interactive.
  • It was great! Super informative! I liked the videos playing in each like alcove of the exhibit and all the informational pieces to read as well.
  • rich in history. You will learn a lot about the past and our continual struggles and dreams of peace.
  • I have lived in this state all my life, but me and my oldest and youngest sons viewed the reflecting pool like we had just landed in Atlanta and got off a tour bus. I put my hand in the water and saw the everlasting flame and now I can say I have visited with The Dreamer.
