With more interactive exhibits, National Civil Rights Museum reopens at site of King shooting

The National Civil Rights Museum is reopening in Memphis after a $28 million, 16-month renovation.

The museum is located on the site of the Lorraine Motel, where Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated on April 4, 1968. He was shot while standing on a balcony.

The museum is scheduled to reopen Saturday, one day after the 46th anniversary of the shooting.

Many of the new exhibits are interactive and offer a more immersive, emotionally hard-hitting experience than before. Included in the new displays are depictions of shackled men on a slave ship. Another exhibit replicates the room where the U.S. Supreme Court heard the landmark 1954 case Brown v. the Board of Education. That ruling made racial segregation in schools illegal.
