EJI Offering Free Admission to Museum and Memorial on MLK Day


In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, EJI is offering free admission to the National Memorial for Peace and Justice and the Legacy Museum on Monday, January 21, 2019. The national holiday on Monday celebrates the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and honors his life-long advocacy for civil rights. The Memorial and Museum opened in April 2018 and have received international acclaim.

“We’re delighted that the city where Dr. King came to prominence has two new sites that seek to advance his dream. We’re thrilled to open these spaces to local residents for free in honor of his life and legacy,” said EJI Director Bryan Stevenson.

The National Memorial for Peace and Justice will be open on Monday from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. (with last entry at 4:30 p.m.).  There is no need for a ticket for the memorial on Monday.

The Legacy Museum will be open on Monday from 9:00 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. (with last entry at 6:30 p.m.). No reservations are required, but visitors to the museum are encouraged to book an entry time online for a shorter wait.

We are thankful to FedEx for their generous support in helping provide free admission for these sites. To learn more and book an entry time for the museum, please visit museumandmemorial.eji.org.
