Dexter Parsonage Museum - Dr. Martin Luther King Home Reviews & Ratings
You had to tour options we did what it was just a walk through the smaller one and the tour guide he takes you through the house and he talks about Martin Luther King as the man not the activist not the legend you read about in the books he brings Martin to life it was amazing and it was more than I thought it was going to be if you are in the Montgomery area you have got to make the stop if you truly enjoy history because the way they do these tours it's like you were invited into the home and you are invited to meet the man not the legend not the story. My husband who had no interest in going to this left happy and glad to hear done it
Awesome Tour! I'M HONORED TO HAVE ENTERED INTO THE HOME OF REV/DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. AND TO SEE AND EXPERIENCE HIS FAMILY LIFE LIVING WAS MORE THAN HEARTFELT. **IT WAS A PRIVILEGE TO BE IN THE PRESENCE OF HISTORY**
I didn’t make it during operating hours. It was still nice to visit the home though. It was still daylight out but I dont know if I’d stay too long after dark. 😉
This far exceeded our expectations. The tour guide was irreplaceable as she attended Dr. Martin Luther King's church in the past. Well worth the $7.50. I do not think I have ever gotten chills from a tour, but this did it.
Hidden gem! We were the only people there and got so much out of it. We had an awesome tour guide and are sad people are not visiting this place more. It's a historical landmark for the Civil Rights Movement in the U.S. This place marked me personally and I'd strongly recommend it to anyone driving through or in the area.
