My friend and I were lucky enough to be in Memphis on vacation at the same time the new wing that incorporates James Earl Ray's boarding house was being dedicated. We explored both the new wing and the main wing and let me tell you this was the most powerful museum I have ever been to. The staff was very friendly and informative and the exhibits - the way they followed history lines from the early 1800's to present time - were spectacular. The tourbooks reccommend giving yourself 1-2 hours. I reccommend much more then that if you want to be able to explore everything.

I visited this museum with my church in March-02. I did not know what to expect and was totally blown away. I can't explain the emotions that overcame me. The displays, writings, pictures, the whole museum is beyond description. This is a highly, highly recommended museum to visit.
