All other facilities such as Ebenezer Baptist Church, Dr. King's Gravesite, Freedom Hall, Fire Station No. 6, and the Visitor Center are self-guided. Martin Luther King, Jr. was born January 15, 1929 at 501 Auburn Avenue, the home of his maternal grandparents.

Definitely a must see when in Atlanta. You need to go to the visitors centre to register to visit the house.

The house is lovely. You're able to see the kitchen, dining room, living room and many bedrooms. Of course not everything is original, because people buy new stuff and throw the old away. So did the Kings. But you can still see how everything was at the time. The guide can tell you all sorts of details of ML youth. Our guide was guiding the typical American way; loud and very loud with lots of drama. That's probably the only thing I disliked. But I'm sure Americans will appreciate it.

I can't believe that's it's free of charge! This gives anyone the opportunity to visit the house of MLK jr. I also cannot believe that the house is just a house, like any other house in that street. By that I mean it's not overwhelmed by tourists. I would have passed by if I didn't sign up for the your. I appreciate it that everything feels intimate (isn't it when you visit someone's house), but I feel like MLK jr deserves better. Let's not forget what he has accomplished. People are standing in queues to see Anne Frank's house ( which I can also recommend) and I believe more people would love to visit this. But it just needs to be promoted better. That's why I'm writing this review. Definitely worth a visit.

You need to book a free ticket on their website or visit the visitor center. I went there but the y didn't allow us to enter unless we get the tickets. I'll be back later.

I wasn't able to visit inside as there were no more organized tours (which you have to take in order to go inside). Historic location, though.

I went on a Civil Rights tour to visit land marks and learn the history of my roots of the civil rights movement. After leaving our first stop in Greensboro, NC, our second stop was in Atlanta, GA. When the instructor scheduled us to visit Dr. King's home I was in awe. Dr. King is a profound civil rights activist as we all know. Growing up I learned about him and did my research about him in the movement. I've dreamed of visiting his birth home and there it was in front of me! It is a beautiful family home with a historically welcoming vibe. It was inevitable for me to take a picture of it and infront of it! And I felt the urge to go inside. Thank God my dream came true! It's like I felt his spirit in the mist! History has an effect on us all and I shall carry on the legacy! There's so much to learn. I recommend anyone interested in history to visit this landmark.

This whole street has a tremendous history behind it.

The whole street needs to be turned into a bigger museum, I think the preliminary steps are taken, but more can be done.

If you stayed in Atlanta and haven't visited this street yet, I think it can be considered as a shame.

It is a very nice home. The site itself is currently undergoing construction and repairs so you can tour the home but it is still a site worth seeing. The home surrounding the property really complement the home as well.

Awesome! Special shout out to Marty, the park ranger who led our tour. He set the whole thing off!! Wonderful public speaker, the things he highlighted about Dr. King and the King family really made you stop and think. Very inspirational!. Beautiful tour, beautiful home. Marty, great job! Keep up the great work! I won't forget this tour and the things I learned.

Interesting spot that offers guided tours of MLK's birth house. Get there early because the tour spots fill up quickly!

If you haven't gone, you should. Excellent historical site. Every race should come to learn about Martin Luther King. Usually, if you get there around the right time in his fathers old church they have a presentation on Martin Luther King. The guy who did the presentation sound just like Martin Luther King.

Nice House. Nice Tour and Nice tour guide. This is a must see attraction in Atlanta but make sure to reserve tickets in advance.

A must see for anyone able to! Some items in the home are actual belongings of the King family. A real treat to see. Call in the morning to schedule the tour, they do fill up. Reservations close about 4pm. I had several people trying to beg to be added to the last tour, so call ahead, not when you get there. You may not get in. The ranger we had knew a lot about the history of the home and family. The store next door had great buys, as well.

Even though it was packed & Classic Hot-Lanta the Guides where nice, answered all our questions and kept people moving along! Go early because Atlanta becomes Hotlanta fast!! My Family enjoyed it and learned a few things.

It was very nice, if you haven't been it's somewhere you need to go and take the tour.

This is one of my favorite places to take friends and it tells so much about Atlanta's history and the compelling story of MLK, Jr. By taking you through his birth Home. And if you are a fan of older homes and history, this is a great place for you, too! I'll put this in the tips portion too, but it doesn't hurt to say it twice! You need to go early if it is a busy day, and I recommend going as soon as they open if this is on your list as they only have so many spots per tour and you can't reserve your spot as you can't call in advance! You have to go in person on the day of, but if you want to go in the morning and get tickets foe later on in the day, you can do that! :) Feel free to message me with questions!

My husband and I were in the area but couldn't make it to the tour because we went there too early. We'll definitely go back and tour the house.

Really interesting tour of the great man's birth place. A good step back in time to an age less enlightened than today. Really enjoyed it.

The tomb and reflection pool was closed during our visit as they get ready for the 50th anniversary of his assassination, but the tour of the home and the visitor's center was nice.

Daisy C

Not a good time to visit the tomb, pool was being drained and cleaned. But walked the block and learned some history about the neighborhood.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birth home is located about a block from the museum at the national park. Tours are made every half hour, and you must sign up to take the tour. We signed up for a spot immediately after the movie, which saved time.

The ranger who led us through the home was excellent. He captured life in the home by helping us visualize what went on in various rooms, and even told stories around some of the furnishings. For instance he pointed out a chair at the kitchen table where Dr. King used to sit, and told how his grandmother would talk to him, and let him taste the food. We were also shown where each person always sat around the dining room table.

The neighborhood around the home has been restored, and gives a good view of what life was like when Dr. King lived there. There is a shop in the home next to the old birthplace where questions can be asked and more information can be found. The home and museum are well worth the time it takes to visit.

Parking is sort of complicated. We parked for free behind the King Center, which is next to Ebenezer Baptist Church and walked down about 2 blocks, in order to get to the home.

You might have to wait a while, but it's worth it. Admission is free, but the tours are guided by rangers.

The tours consist of groups of about 15, and last approximately 15 minutes. Most of the items in the home are original. The upstairs was closed off, due to needed repairs.

My 8 year-old daughter loved the experience and was in awe about the fact that she'd actually walked on floors and stood in the home that Dr. King once walked on and lived in. She said that she was grateful for the experience and that she could just imagine Dr. King, as a little boy, playing and eating inside the house.

This is one historical place of interest that you'll definitely want to cross off of your bucket list!

I visited Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthplace and the gift shop next door. The tour guide was knowledgeable and made me think about my life and future aspirations. I had many emotions walking through the home...a strong sense of pride and appreciation for Dr. King Jr! I pictured Dr. King playing as a child and what other activities that took place in the house. Excellent, educational and life-changing!!

My family and I really enjoyed ourselves today Jan 15, 2018. The staff was kind, helpful, open to questions and very respectful. Do to other visitors respectfully, we had to move at a fast pace which we could not take time to view everything in each room. Overall I give my review 4 stars.

Wonderful experience πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™πŸ½πŸ‘πŸΎ

This was sooo magical !

I went super spontaneously and wish i would of made a tour reservation but hey at-least i got to view his house from the outside πŸ‘ It is not hard to find parking but it will be a walk to get there and back. Also it is locked and the Troops do stand 24/7 outside watching over it.

Recommend 10/10 🀝

Even though my family and I were unable to enter, because we didn't obtain free passes that are necessary to enter( you can get these tickets free of charge from a block or two over from the home), I still must give it a 5. It's history! The grounds were kept up very nicely. If the inside of the house is of any resemblance to the shop that we visited next door, then it is beautiful. The shop had many different books, hats, toys, etc. to purchase. Very nice, as the lady who was working there. I will definitely go back.

They completed the renovations of the Infinity Pool...it is beautiful! Of course the Birth Home is amazing but don't forget to walk along Auburn Ave. It gives you a real glimps of what Martin Luther King's neighborhood was like when he was young. All the history and beauty of the homes, not to mention the fact that some of his original neighbors still live close by. Also, chat up the Mailman if you see him. He knows everyone and can introduce you to at least one of the original neighbors. Wonderfully enlightening experience!

Always welcomed to take pictures of the home but if you want the guided tour you have to sign up free with the rangers. They fill up fast and it's only on a 1st come 1st serve basis and the last tour is at 4pm. Always plenty of visitors but I didn't have a hard time finding a park. Very close to the Ebenezer Baptist Church and memorial.

Nice ranger tour of the house where MLK was born and lived in during childhood. You can't take pictures inside the house but pictures outside are fine.

Make sure that you get your ticket from the visitor centre before hand. Tours are limited to 15 people each time so fill up quickly.

Amazing place to visit. A must see when in Atlanta. The National Park Service had bought up the whole street in order to preserve it, which is pretty ambitious. Worth our tax dollars, and I don't say that often!

5/31/2018

Well preserved historical landmark/area with several options for guided tours or easily self guided. The area covers about 3 blocks and is mix of preserved landmarks and museums. You can walk through in as little as 30-45 minutes or take a couple hours to read and view all of the historical information. Also, most if not all of what is offered is FREE!

Mimi B

5/31/2018

A great place to visit! You need at least 2-3 hours to tour all the buildings. I'd start with the visitor's center and then the church, his childhood home and then the menorial. I'm very happy this is part of our national park system.

Ty. G

7/1/2018

This place was amazing and our tour guide was amazing as well. I was literally in awe the entire time. Most of the things in the house have been replicated and replaced in the house but they have some authentic relics as well. The King's family house is hugeeee; Martin obviously had him a little affluent upbringing and I love it! The house looks relatively small from the outside but it's huge on the inside. Pictures are forbidden but the tour is free. It is recommended that you wake up early to put your name on the list for tours because tickets go very quick!

Amazing experience. Most moving and inspirational place I have ever visited. National park service has done an amazing job preserving these sites. I stood in the same spot the dr. preached from. I was able to walk through the house the Martin ran through as a kid. It was a very moving experience. I will definitely be going back and taking the family.

Well put together place that goes through his entire life. Sadly not as popular as other sites in Atlanta. But a place worth seeing just to understand and see his legacy.

I was 12 years old when Dr. King was assassinated. I've lived echoing his Dream speech in my life and in the classroom. Visiting the site that remembers a man on assignment from God to change an injustice to humanity (like Moses) was an honor. The inspiration and dedication to continue the message of equality, "not by the color of your skin but by the content of your character" was renewed.

Oh my goodness. I visited this place when I was in high school and now I bring my children to visit. It was amazing. The local guides were awesome. The playing of his speech while sitting in the sanctuary brought chills to me. It was just an experience I will never forget. So far we have come, and so much further to go.

I do need to go back. Parking was a major problem. Parking lots can be a rip off. Just make sure you read the small print before turning into a lot. I would not go during the summer time heat. Be careful when walking on sideways that are close to the streets with fast moving traffic. Watch your surroundings. Also visit the gift shop.

A great historical site worth the visit. It provides so much education not otherwise known. If you really know the importance you will appreciate the experience!

Great place but the park rangers in charge of the tour registration really sucks! The ranger did tell me to arrive at 2:30 this afternoon to get the tickets for the tour on 3:00 PM. Nothing more. But when I got there 2:45 PM, another ranger told me in a cold manner she already given my tickets to others. I'm fine with it If the system works in this way. But you should keep everyone informed about it.

The park ranger was very knowledgeable. He showed us around the house explaining what event took place in that area or what it was use for. To be able to see the house, you have to get a free ticket at the Martin Luther king Jr. center (a block away). Tickets are limited, so I suggest to get there a little bit early before 9 a.m.; before the tour busses get there.

Well preserved. Wish they told you about it as you walked through and did not rush you through it. There is a more personalized tour but spots qre limited without reservation allowed. But the experience was great

Great History! To be able to visit such a beautiful place in history, that one man give his life for, that all man kind can come together as one. I will be traveling back with my grandkids, so they can visit him home, church etc. The church he preached at also was breathtaking.....

Great place to be and check out, but it seems like it could be so much more. Still well worth the trip. Maybe the guided tours are worth it, we'll give that a shot next time.

This place is Amazing. If you want a day full of peace and love then this is it. All the employees were nice and explained the history really well. My favorite part was the burial area. I cried tears of joy. I'm just so grateful its FREE and I'm Atlanta. They also have free parking right next to Ebenezer Church. Thank me later πŸ€—

What an awesome, educational, and enlightening experience. Being in the presence of such greatness was extremely powerful and humbling. My family and I encountered no expense for anything that we wanted to see or do. I did notice one place to donate and it was very discrete. We were not able to enter the house as you must sign up early in the morning at the museum for a guided tour, BUT..that's okay because it will now give us another reason to revisit the historical site.

The exhibits in this series of museums are educational and extremely moving. I highly recommend them as a history lesson, a reminder of how far we've come as a country, and of how far we still need to progress to achieve full equality for our citizens.

Guide was fantastic and informative.

House was great and will worth the trip.

Just a short 20 min walk from Centennial Park, it was a great experience

The thought and how the timeline of his life was displayed in honor of Martin Luther King Jr had a flow and undeniable depth of all he accomplished in his short but impactful life. Each area was within walking distance. I was moved and inspired. Would visit again to read, learn, and share with my kids about this amazing man.
