National Civil Rights Museum

Many people flock to Memphis to see Graceland.  If you had to pick one place, I would come here instead.  An epic, must-see museum located in a very walkable part of the city.  A lot of time and patience have been put into this museum to showcase the struggle for Civil Rights and to recreate the Lorraine Hotel when Martin Luther King was assassinated.

Inside the room is the same condition on that fateful day, right down to the way the bed was made and there were dirty dishes from a meal that Dr. King ate minutes earlier.  There’s a huge wreath placed on the railing outside and two vintage vehicles parked outside.  Very sobering and moving.
