Really interesting subject matter, but we were underwhelmed by how little was made of it. As suggested, it all felt a little dumbed down and I wasn't sure which exhibits (if all or any) were intended for children.

Amazing exhibits that represented the history of the fight for civil rights. If you visit only one site in Atlanta, make it the King Historical Park. Take the time to walk through everything, as each piece tells an amazing story.

When I was there last, there was no charge, but a donation was requested. Well worth the visit either way.
