Rating for your family


The National Civil Rights Museum has played a leading role in the history of civil rights. It is located at the Lorraine Motel, the site of Dr. Martin Luther King's assassination and one of the first hotels where African American travelers could find accommodations. In memory of Dr. King, the museum is dedicated to protecting and fighting for civil rights, including in its collections exhibits that highlight the history and progress of the civil rights movement. Today, it is even the custodian of the police and evidence files pertaining to the assassination of Dr. King. It is a great place to take kids who are learning about this period in history, but certainly all should be inspired by the National Civil Rights Museum.

Tips for Families

The Exploring the Legacy exhibit is designed to address 3 questions: 1) Did the Movement die with Dr. King? 2) Was James Earl Ray the assassin? and, 3) What is the legacy of the movement? It would be beneficial to go over these questions with older children before coming to the museum.
