The MLK Jr site does an outstanding job of presenting the life, times and work of Dr. King and his family. I found it very sobering and inspirational. I noticed people of different ages, backgrounds and nationalities being moved by the exhibits.

Extremely affordable & convenient way to dive in to this great historical community. From his childhood home, firehouse, church & entire neighborhood, one can imagine him walking the blocks and being influenced by all he observed around him.

How long should I allow for a thorough visit? BTW, there is or was tobacco in Connecticut. I'm from North Carolina & remember being surprised to see tobacco barns up there in CT as a child.

Two hours sounds about right. I concur with others, make sure to go to the church across the street.
What is the nearest MARTA RAPID RAIL station? Or best way by public transport please.
