The home where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was born will be partially open for tourists this weekend in honor of his 88th birthday.

King’s birth home on Auburn Avenue in Atlanta had been closed for repairs since August as the National Park Service reinforced the floor and the foundation.

Starting Saturday, the first floor will be open for public tours. The second floor will remain closed until it can be examined in the spring.
