The National Civil Rights Museum is riveting for all Americans of all races and cultures. The museum is set in the exact location of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., at the Lorraine Hotel. The museum goes into great depths explaining the plight of black Americans during this tumultous time in our history, culminating in the assination of Dr. King. You CANNOT truly see Memphis until you visit this poignant display. You could easily spend 4+ hours in this museum perusing the events leading up to the death of Martin Luther King Jr., as well as the aftermath and investigation. In addition, the tour ends with an intensive exploration of many (if not all) civil rights milestones that lead up to the assassination of Dr. King.
