Description
On April 4, 1968 all eyes in the world turned to a small hotel in Memphis, TN. On a balcony of the Lorraine Hotel, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. Today, this landmark has become a tribute to the Civil Rights Movement in the United States and has ensured that at least part of Dr. King's dream would come true. From 1987 to 1991, the hotel and the four acres on which it is located underwent a radical transformation, becoming the National Civil Rights Museum.

Exhibits featured inside the museum and its expansion cover events from 1619 to the present day and include Little Rock, Montgomery Bus Boycott, The March on Washington, Booker T. Washington, The Assassination of Dr. King and much more. The voices and faces responsible for many of the most significant events in the Civil Rights Movement come to life here and tell an enthralling story of decades of struggle for equality and fairness.

Still Have Questions?

I was overwhelmed with memphis. It is such a gentle walk through time with martin luther, beale's and the history of music. The peabody hotel of itself is timeless. Memphis for me was like van gough's iris'. It is the beauty of the iris captured within this timeless city. The walk from the civil rights museum to the arcade restaurant. Everything in memphis is so vital to those areas of humankind that are of importance such as music,food, equality and the opportunity to breathe fresh clean air as a free person. Thank you for such a beautiful experience.

I was really amused with all of memphis and what it had to offer as far as the museums and the bar-b-que. The jazz the blues. I could just feel the free spirit of the people of memphis that i was exposed to. Everyone was so friendly. The music was the boom. I guess that i was just over whelmed with all of the history, from martin luther king to elvis presley, and loved those grilled peanut butter and banana sandwiches. I loved the concerts by the river. Memphis i will be back......... Thank you

As so many that have had the opportunity to view this breath taking museum, i was speechless, and felt as though i was there the day it all happened. I loved every minute of it, just listening to the stories brought tears to my eyes to hear and see what our people went through to make things better for generations to come. If you have not been, please go its well worth the money you'll spend in gas.
