New Wing - Go Again and Again

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.

IMMENSE

If you take the tour and read the attractions, you will start to feel what they felt, and it will really move you.

Moving experience.

I visited this museum for the first and only time back in 1994, and it still sits in my memory as one of the best museum experiences of my life (and I've travelled pretty extensively).

UNBELIEVABLE

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.
