|About these ratings|
Recent travelers agree the National Civil Rights Museum should be at the top of anyone's list of things to see in Memphis. Housed in the Lorraine Motel where Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated, the museum features multimedia presentations on the Civil Rights Movement. Stop in and explore the Montgomery, Ala. public bus that sits inside the Montgomery area of the museum. According to one TripAdvisor user, "All visitors must see the exhibitions at this museum first before all other attractions. It provides framework for all other architectural and musical attractions that surround it and puts the past, present the future in perspective."
Located south of Downtown Memphis, the National Civil Rights Museum is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. (the museum is closed on Tuesdays). Admission is roughly $13 for adults, $11 for seniors and students and $9.50 for children ages 4 through 17. Guided tours are available.
