To be honest, we didn't go through the museum, but that was only because we spent more than an hour chatting with the staff. The conversation was related to the museum, and it was so interesting that we ran out of time to see the...More

The tour begins with a video with that has can use some updating. It lost the attention of some of us. It did however, feel like a walk in the past when we enetered Dr. King's home.

Happened to be in Montgomery in February, found it fitting to get in a little history. Drove over to the Parsonage but missed it during viewing hours. Still able to read history and take pictures. Will make time to go back at another time.
