    Went there with friends that were from out of town. Was a great educational experience. We can live in a city and not experience the true riches that we have until someone visits.  more »

    We toured the King Center, the National Park Center and Ebeneezer Baptist Church. All were very worthwhile.  more »

    This is wonderful historic site commemorating not just MLK but also those who fought and in some cases died for the basic human principle of Civil Rights and Equality for all human beings.  more »

    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.

    When you first walk up you think its an exhibit for Ghandi😣 Thought MLK did say he liked Ghandi and his works,Ghandi shouldnt be the headliner. Smh. The exhibit needs remodeling. Sadly it looks the same when i visited as a child. It is free and runs off of donations so while you are there put something inside those little boxes you will see throughout.

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.
