Museum at the site of the Lorraine Motel where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed in 1968. Museum traces the Civil Rights Movement. You can see the balcony where Dr. King was shot and the room where James Earl Ray fired the shot.

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.
