National Civil Rights Museum
From the outside, the National Civil Rights Museum looks exactly as it did in the 1950s when it was the Lorraine Motel, the best hotel in the region for African Americans in the segregation era. And it is where Dr Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated on 4 April 1968. It is now an excellent museum, which looks back over the long march of a people to have their rights recognised. The exhibition is extremely moving.
