If you are looking for a real life look into what it must have been like growing up for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his family, then you must visit his childhood home.

I enjoyed visiting this historic site for the very first time. There is so much history here, and being inside Ebenezer Baptist Church, was such a heartfelt experience. I would recommend this to everyone! There is no admission fee, but you may give a donation!

Unfortunately I was unable to take a tour of MLK's house but the visitor center/museum itself was very interesting and so touching. I had chills the entire time! Arrive early if you'd like a tour of the house and prepare to pay for parking.

MLK Jr's childhood home, the Ebenezer Baptist Church where he preached, his tomb, and a museum are all part of this National Park. There are also rooms in the museum dedicated to Loretta Scott King, Rosa Parks, and Gandhi. Everything is free.

Beautiful place to visit with historical information, tour guides and a free movie show. I would allot about two hours for a thorough walk through and if you want to see the 20 minute movie.

Two hours sounds about right. I concur with others, make sure to go to the church across the street.
