The National Civil Rights Museum is a complex of museums and historic buildings in Memphis, Tennessee; its exhibits trace the history of the Civil Rights Movement in the United States from the 17th century to the present. The museum is built around the former Lorraine Motel, where Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated on April 4, 1968. Two other buildings and their adjacent property, also connected with the King assassination, have been acquired as part of the museum complex.
The museum re-opened in 2014 after renovations that increased the number of multimedia and interactive exhibits, including numerous short movies to enhance features.
The main exhibit area is packed with compelling displays conveying the struggles of the civil rights movement. “Living Under Jim Crow” features 30 portraits, which deliver testimonials when touched. “Albany Freedom Songs” is highlighted by a 6,000-lumen ceiling-mounted projector, four wall-mounted speakers in the ceiling alcove and a 10 by 7.6-foot (3 by 2.3 meter) screen wall painted with Screen Goo.
