I enjoyed it, was just very crowded, a little confusing...because of the crowd, kind of hard to explore/read much.

Once you figure out the parking situation, you're good to go. The center is well done with exhibits, videos, and museums. Plus you get to visit the church and his birth home.

Definitely go here when you are in Atlanta. The park is much bigger than you would think. Very nearby is Ebenezer Baptist Church, which is open to visitors and had MLK sermons/speeches on a loop. Very inspiring!

An amazing experience to say the least, the preservation and amount of effort put forth to keep this site as it is, is truly evident.

Do yourself a favor...Just Go! Open your heart and soul and visit this sacred sight. The entire neighborhood is rich with history and meaning and the museum and tomb are sobering, especially in our world today.
