The National Civil Rights Museum was recently featured in New York Times' online travel video, "36 Hours in Memphis" featuring interesting things to do in Memphis. The section describing the museum experience reads:
Lest We Forget – Head downtown to the National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel (adults, $15). The museum was recently infused with more than $27 million, and the outcome is an informative and visually compelling walk through history. The sprawling complex, developed around the motel where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated on April 4, 1968, traces slavery and the civil rights movement from the 17th century to the present. Creative, modern and immersive, this tour is arresting and rewarding.
