The museum, located at the lorraine motel, the assassination site of dr. Martin luther king, jr. , chronicles key episodes of the american civil rights movement and the legacy of this movement to inspire participation in the civil and human rights efforts globally, through our collections, exhibitions and educational programs.
The permanent exhibits at the museum provide educational opportunities to students, families and other visitors through our tours of the museum. The museum chronicles the civil rights movements, starting with slavery in 1619 to the present. In fiscal year 2015, the museum had 251,488 visitors and 6,674 special program attendees for a total of 258,162. This was an all-time high due to the $27. 5 million renovation of the museum that opened in april of 2014. The museum campus of 4. 5 acres includes 3 buildings - lorraine, legacy and administration. Permanent exhibitions are in legacy and lorraine, which also has new larger centralized collections/archives storage, changing gallery for traveling exhibits, program space and the education center with 2 classrooms fully equipped a/v, library and office. This center enables the museum to host aligned smaller nonprofit organizations, enhance student field trips, host teacher workshops and other activities.
