IMO, this is THE reason to come to Atlanta (although a lot of other great things to do here). Really moving exhibits to learn about a true American saint (and I say this as an atheist). The Natio… Full review by AlbertCav

Q:
Are there any Park Ranger talks at any of the sites? I know the Birth Home is closed right now, but was wondering if they give any talks at places like the Visitor's Center or the Ebenezer Baptist Church?
A:
They have talks at both those locations, and many park rangers around to speak with as well. Definitely worth the visit.

Q:
Do I need to arrive well before the visitors center opens to get tickets for the tour? How early if so? Are there open house hours to see the house on a self guided tour? Planning to visit either the afternoon of Sat 3/21 or morning of Sun 3/22. We have limited time so we can’t wait all day for our slot. If the chances of getting morning tickets are slim we may just opt to do the self guided tour outside.
A:
call to get tour times arrive 30 minutes before.

Q:
How is the overall area of the Hisotrical Park? Does it feel safe? I've read some reviews about there being a handful of homeless and panhandlers around the area. Not that I'm personally really bothered by it, but just asking because I will be visiting Atlanta in April and it's more because my parents are kind of the paranoid type.
A:
Personally, I did not see any homeless or Panhandlers in the area when I visited Dr. King's memorial. There could possibly be people of that nature because of the location, but I do not …
A:
Personally, I did not see any homeless or Panhandlers in the area when I visited Dr. King's memorial. There could possibly be people of that nature because of the location, but I do not think there is a reason to be afraid because of security and there are people who reside in the area are simply poor and harmless.
Q:
How early should I be at the Visitor Center on a Sunday morning to get tickets for my family of 4 to tour MLK's Birth Home?
A:
I think it would depend on the Sunday.. holiday weekends would be packed early. We got our tickets early on a non holiday and we got in on the last tour of the day... you know what they …

Q:
Are dogs allowed here? They are for sure allowed in the outside areas right?
A:
Not in the buildings but it is a neighborhood and you can walk your dog down the street and in the park.
