  • This museum is amazing! Dorothy gave us a great tour! She is a wealth of knowledge. You could walk through and read everything in 30 minutes but we stayed for longer as Dorothy had so many stories to share with us. Amazing to be able to stand in the place where such a historic moment happened
  • So informative. A must see!
  • The director who gives the tour's passion, wealth of knowledge, and ability to convey the story of the Freedom Riders made this visit a must! She reinforced the importance of what they did and how that shaped our country and the Civil Rights movement.
  • One of my top favorite spots in Montgomery!!!! Tour guide was very informative and learned a lot about the freedom rides! Awesome experience and well worth the $5.00
  • Wow!!! Woman at front desk was so friendly. We went very knowledgeable and offered to give us a 20 minute tour around the museum. Small space but impactful information. Lesser known events that deserve more coverage from Civil Rights movement. Overall great visit, highly recommend stopping by here.
