This is a must go and definitely take the whole family. This is the place of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. assasination in 1968 in Memphis, TN, the National Civil Rights Museum is a renowned educational and top notch tour.
An incredible museum, with an interactive experience off learning all about the Civil Rights Movement. Located at The Lorraine Motel, where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated.
The Civil Rights Museum covers a huge swath of history from the early days of the slave trade through the Civil Rights movement. There are even exhibits about Memphis’s role in the Black Lives Matter and discussion about MLK’s legacy.
An important part not of only Memphis history, but that of our nation, as well. Tragically, this is the site where Martin Luther King, Jr., was assassinated. It is now an esteemed educational and cultural institution. Plan to spend several hours up to half a day.
Noted as one of the nation's premiere heritage and cultural museums. Shares the culture and lessons from the American Civil Rights Movement and beyond. Recently expanded. Special exhibits. See the Lorraine hotel's exterior just as it was during the time of MLK, Jr's assassination.

“Open on South Main Street since 1919, The Arcade is Memphis’ oldest operating restaurant and a local institution. It’s also the restaurant where Elvis Presley ate fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches while sitting in a blue booth. Now, a century after Arcade opened, third generation owner Harry Zepatos Jr. runs The Arcade as a modern diner. However, he hasn’t forgotten the past – Elvis’ booth is still intact and his PB&B sandwich remains on the menu.”
