Repository description (extant): The National Civil Rights Museum, located at the Lorraine Motel, the assassination site of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., chronicles key episodes of the American civil rights movement and the legacy of this movement to inspire participation in civil and human rights efforts globally, through our collections, exhibitions, and educational programs.
Prior to the formal adoption of this mission statement, the Museum was founded with the purpose of not only preserving the place where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spent his last hours, but also to preserve his legacy and that of the civil rights movement as a whole.
