While driving from Chicago to Orlando, we visited the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change in Atlanta, which includes his birthplace and resting place. The center is more of a large area experience than a museum, since it encompasses Ebenezer Baptist Church, an educational center, the grave site, and birthplace. While we enjoyed our time, we both agreed this was more of a "paying respect" attraction than the National Civil Rights Museum. Both are important and noteworthy, but if you're choosing one- our top choice is the Museum in Memphis. If you're in Atlanta, this is a great spot to spend an afternoon and reflect.
^^This shot feels slightly awkward now, looking back. Maybe skip selfies with cardboard MLK.^^
