We we're hoping to see both the church and Dr. King's home, but our time was limited and we arrived a bit late, but we got to see the church, and experience the tour given by a wonderful and energetic lady. Unfortunately, I am so bad at remembering names, I would've loved to give her credit here, but you'll have... 更多
The rich history of this church is something that no one visiting Montgomery should ever miss!! That history starts long before Dr. King but is is refreshing to learn of the impact that he had on this church. Our tour guide was phenomenal!!! She is so knowledgeable and gets the visitors to interact in the tour!! My 13 year old... 更多
Wanda, the wonderful guide, gives an inspirational tour of the church where Martin Luther King was a peacher during the civil rights struggle. This is still a living church and the organist is the same woman appointed by King, albeit now in her 80s. I found this a very welcoming and uplifting experience and would recommend it to all visiting... 更多
Walking into this amazing building where Dr. King was the pastor is an experience I'm thrilled to have. Wanda is the kindest, most loving soul. As she showed us around she told story after story. What a wealth of information she is. This is a must see. Make time to visit and to visit the parsonage.
The tour guide was excellent. Nothing better than learning a little more about the Civil Rights Movement and the great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This is totally worth it, but be sure to call ahead and verify tour times. It is also very close to other landmarks in downtown Montgomery. Costs about $8/person. You should plan to be there... 更多
To begin, Ms. Wanda Battle is the warmest & most knowledgeable docent in the South! The tour begins in the lower church with an orientation to Dr. King's time as pastor and includes a visit to his office where the walls are lined with wonderful photos. From there we were invited to stand at the podium that was used by... 更多
There are a lot of attractions in this world, but only a small subset deserve the adjective "inspiring." This is one. Dexter Avenue Baptist Church (they added "King Memorial" to the name a few years ago) is an active church of around 100 members. Largely staffed by church volunteers, their organization offer tours of both the church itself and the... 更多
I spent the weekend in Montgomery between work weeks in other Alabama towns. I wanted to see the historic sites of the Civil Rights movement, and this is one. The docent was simply wonderful and conveyed the history of the site as well as her enthusiasm. Do not pass by the opportunity to visit these wonderful people and see first... 更多
