The National Civil Rights Museum was built as an extention of the Lorraine Motel. They left the facade of the Lorraine Motel intact as the museum entrance and recreated a sense of how it may have looked on April 4, 1968 - the day Rev Dr King was fatally shot. He was staying in room 306, the wreath is placed in the spot where he was felled.
