Every American needs to visit this museum. It is a vivid, moving, vital part of our American history. Save at least 3-4 hours to read, learn and reflect. This is an absolute must for everyone!

My purpose for coming to Memphis was for this museum and to see where Dr. King was assassinated. It was somber yet a good exhibit.

Another must visit while in Memphis. Take your time during the museum visit as it could take you over 4 hours to capture just some of the information displayed. Very emotional but inspiring.

This museum chronicles the horrific history of the brutality and vast scope of the crime of slavery. The historical data is shocking as the numbers speak of widespread abuse. The presentation is both enlightening and disturbing. To learn how disgusting so many American politicians and...More
