Fees & Reservations
Admission and parking are FREE.
No special arrangements are needed since most of the park is self-guided. However, you will need to register to tour the Birth Home of Dr. King. Reservations for touring the Birth Home are handled on a first-come first-serve basis the day of your tour, in person. No advance reservations can be made.
There are only 15 persons permitted on a tour. Tours fill up quickly, so arrive early in the day. Groups can reserve up to three spaces (45 persons) the day of their tour.
Obtain your free Birth Home tickets at the information desk located inside Freedom Hall at The King Center.
Education programs are available upon request. Please contact the Education Coordinator for more information.
