Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What an amazing place to visit! Dr. King’s story was told through pictures, videos, and artifacts. I also appreciated how Coretta’s contributions were celebrated, and I learned so much about her and what she did both before and after marrying him. Then to see where they are interred: such a solemn and beautiful setting.

Following services at Ebenezer Baptist Church, we headed across the street to see the King memorials and tour a little bit of the historic Auburn neighborhood. All of the sites were closed on Sunday, but it was still worthwhile to see this important landmark in our civil rights journey.

Like the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historical Park on the opposite side of the road, this is another "should not be missed" site in Atlanta. As well as the history of Dr Martin Luther King, Jr, there is also information about Rosa Parks and the Civil Rights Movement. The highlights of any visit, though, have to be the 'Eternal Flame' and the graves of Dr King and His wife, Coretta Scott King; a privilege to see.

Truly immersive experience into the civil rights era. Learnt a few facts. I have always loved history and being here, standing in this place was quite emotional.

During a visit to the King Center, one can see the birth home of Dr. King, Ebenezer Baptist Church where he preached, the crypt where Dr. and Mrs. King are buried, and the eternal flame. This visit was a fitting end to my civil rights movement trip through Birmingham, Selma, Montgomery and Atlanta.

Very clean, and goosebumps immediately. The eternal flame, rose garden, and memorial were incredible. This is another stop on the city night lights tour with Omar
