National Civil Rights Museum is notable for several reasons. One, it’s the actual location of MLK’s assassination. The museum is the original motel building. And it actually houses police evidence concerning the investigation. Recently, money was donated by theBill and Melinda Gates Foundation to expand. The museum is now a full campus with a stronger focus on education and enclosed by these inspring gates designed by Tod Palmer.
