- Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic SiteFirst to ReviewNov 14, 2013
This site is spread among several areas--a visitors center, which has permanent exhibits and films on MLK and the civil rights movement; the Ebenezer Baptist Church where MLK was pastor; the King Center, which holds MLK and his wife's crypt; and MLK's birth home. The last--my favorite stop--can be visited on a free guided tour (sign up at the visitor center).

Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site is part of the national park service park unit. Disability Access is available with lots of walking involved. You will need about 2 to 3 hours to visit.

A series of important landmarks in the heart of Atlanta illustrate the city’s important role during the nation’s Civil Rights Movement and centered on the life of its leader and one of the most important figures in modern American history: Atlanta native Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Atlanta visitors have the opportunity to visit King’s birth home, the burial site of King and his wife, The King Center exhibition and archive, and Ebenezer Baptist Church, King’s family’s chapel where he served as co-pastor until his death.
Each site is located within a short walk in downtown Atlanta.

Toured MLK's house and church on MLK day and it was so surreal and amazing. It's incredible that these sites are not more visited. Just open to the public. Very accessible. Incredible to read his words and wisdom, on his birthday, and then pay respects at his simple grave.

You must spend a couple of hours here at least once. Dr. King's burial site, the house where he grew up, his church, and an excellent museum are all in the neighborhood. It is easy to get here via public transportation. This is an important part of Atlanta history and is worth a visit.
