  • We loved our experience here and would come back if we had the chance. The exhibits were amazing and the service was great. The pricing was very good for the time and the exhibits that were there. It was one of the best museums that I have ever been to and would recommend this museum to anyone. My family and I will remember this museum forever.
  • The Day I visited the Center it changed my life forever. The lunch counter experience reminded me of God's grace, they had to have to remain calm without responding to what they heard. I recommend everyone to come and bring your entire family. We are blessed to have this as a part of the city for those around the world to come and see.
  • Great museum. Good mix between things visual/audio materials. The sit-in simulator offered a powerful experience. Navigating the elevator with a stroller was a bit challenging due to some confusing level names (1, 2, 2R, M, 3) but the common path for people walking through was very clear so that you did not kiss anything. The family bathrooms were also a great size. Gift shop was awesome and had a nice selection of items ranging from clothing to books to light snacks.
  • Staff was very friendly and nice. Was originally planning to go for a couple hours but once I got there I realized you really need at least a whole afternoon to read everything thoroughly and get the full experience. Bought some things in the gift shop also. I highly recommend going here to educate yourself on civil rights history and world issues. It's extremely interesting and powerful! Also, prepare to cry at parts of it.
  • An unexpectedly great place everyone should come and see. The dark side of human history were shown in the center. Not only political but also economical and other aspects were touched. Mainly focused on civil and human rights which is something not many people remember or appreciate today.
