Take a moment to absorb this historical landmark. It is exactly as it was back in the day when Dr. MLK Jr. Was shot. The Civil Rights Museum is across the street.

The National Civil Rights Museum includes the Lorraine Motel, where King's room is exactly as he left it before stepping out on the balcony to his death.

Get there early and plan to spend a few hours. This is not something you want to rush through. You could easily spend three hours or more here. So worth the time.
