Visit the Martin Luther King Jr National Historic Site, consisting of several buildings, to discover his childhood home and learn about his titanic struggle to promote Civil Rights in the United States. This area includes numerous buildings focused around the early life of Martin Luther King Jr and features exhibits which show the path of the Civil Rights Movement, and how he came to play such a central role in it. Be sure to visit the reflecting pool and the tombs of both Martin Luther King Jr. and his wife Coretta Scott King by Ebenezer Church. As well as exhibits on this legendary activist and the spiritual leader, Mahatma Gandhi, the memorial also holds commemorative services where you can pay your respects and remember the revolutionary acts of these courageous 20th century icons.
