  • Be aware the memorial is actually outside. We had gone inside without even noticing it. Well worth the visit and move/wall is sobering. Sad time in history.
  • Very touching fountain in front of the center. Visit it before you go into the center. It makes so much more sense when you experienced it first, before you learn more background information. It's also very moving to listen to the narration next to each piece of the puzzle.
  • Everyone that stops in this town should go visit this musuem. It's educational and really touched your soul ( no matter what race or religion). They have a small gift shop and you will find something you like as a reminder. Very nice people.
  • The museum was nice but quite small. I went there expecting much more and found myself disappointed by the size. The museum is impactful for its size, harking to the phrase; big things come in small packages. It can easily be done thoroughly in an hour, I recommend you visit the Memorial and the Dexter Baptist Church in an afternoon. Those two sites combined really tell the story of Civil Rights Movement's past and looking to the future. The water fall outside, that has a list of major events in the Civil Rights movement, was a favorite of mine. Admission is $2, Active Military and Children are free. They take debit and credit cards and also cash.
  • We stopped here on a trip on our way to Florida it was my best friend and my daughters. Beautiful time of reflection. A quite time to honor those who lost their life to make ours better. It did remind me of the memorial that was in Washington DC for the Vietnam vets. I was surprised to see the water coming down the wall as well as the granite fountain with the names on it.
