Dallas Civil Rights Museum at the MLK Center

The Dallas Civil Rights Museum at the MLK Center houses a collection of speeches, books, spoken word, art, and artifacts relevant to the life and times of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This is an effort to inspire people to discover and reconnect with the power of the Civil Rights Movement in America.

The new "Pathway to Freedom Exhibit" will run from January 15 - March 5, 2015. This is a traveling exhibit created by the International NET XChange Group to display a collection of artifacts related to the Trail of Tears, the Underground Railroad, and the Civil Rights Movement.

The Dallas Civil Rights museum is open Monday – Friday, from 10:00am to 3:00pm and on Saturdays by appointment only. For guided tours outside of business hours, please call (214) 670-8418.


“Life's most persistent and urgent question is,
