At Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, see King's childhood home, the church where he and his father pastored, and the final resting place of King. Take a free ticket at the visitor center and join a guided tour of the house. Visit the museum that chronicles the American Civil Rights movements, and the "I Have a Dream" International World Peace Rose Garden--an artistic representation of King's life of non-violence. You can walk the International Civil Rights Walk of Fame, which honors those who fought for equality. On a brick island, at the center of a reflecting pool, you'll see the tomb of Martin Luther and his wife, Coretta.

Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site reviews
This was a must see for us on a recent trip to Atlanta. Unfortunately the welcome center and other pieces were closed. We still were able to see the reflection pool, the tomb and eternal flame. more »
Wonderfully cared for! We loved our visit even during the pandemic. Must see when in Atlanta. Recommend even for moody teenagers-LOL more »
Excellent and a must see. Be sure to do the birth home tour. Everything is free including parking and well laid out.We went in summer and the roses were in full bloom. The church, visitors center and birth tour are doable in a few hours. Great places to eat nearby if your not afraid of a few rough looking streets. People are friendly. But you will be asked for spare change by some needy people.
A must visit when in Atlanta! It is free, historically significant, and far less crowded than many of the the other more popular tourist destinations. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the park was amazing. It has undergone additional updates following it's recent designation as a national historical park and looks outstanding. Great job guys! Put this on your agenda and skip the lines at the Aquarium and at Cocoa Cola.
