  • This is my favorite museum in Montgomery and one we can truly be proud of. It's so well done and more expansive and in depth than you might think before visiting. You could almost spend a day there or...  more »
  • Most of us have only a cursory idea of what went on with Rosa Parks and the Montgomery Bus Boycott. This small but mighty museum will educate you painlessly and yet in a moving way. Highly recommended  more »
  • Went on 2/2! Free admission as it was Rosa Parks birthday. Phenomenal exhibits and history in this place. Worth the time to stop and visit!  more »

  • Very very informative. Must make time to read the plaques as you walk through if really interested on accurate history. Great for all ages except for toddlers­čśü
  • Very informative and educational museum. The museum is a part of Troy University's campus in Montgomery at the site of Rosa Parks arrest. There are two parts of the museum and it was worth paying the admission too see both sides. In children's wing you sit in a bus turned into a "time machine" that takes you back to learn about slavery, the abolishionists, Jim Crow laws, 14th amendment and the beginning of the civil rights movement. There exhibit stops just before the arrest of Rosa Parks. It was very informative and gave great context for her arrest and the events that followed. The second half of the museum continued the story with her arrest and the Montgomery bus boycott. It continued with information about the civil rights movement and it's leaders. There were pictures and biographies of many of the key players, many of whom were from Montgomery. There was original artwork inspired Rosa Parks. We had a great time with our two young children and I feel they were able to understand and learn from many of the exhibits. I look forward to going back sometime.
  • Good one hour tour of exhibits and art. Best local museum but better to do as part of tour of Montgomery museums and archives for a day.
  • The children's wing is information and good. The adult side was OK. It really isn't a museum, perse. It is more of an information hub with a lot of details around Rosa Parks and the bus boycott. The information was well laid out and informative. My child learned enough to understand the atrocities people will do to each other, just because they think there is a difference.
  • I enjoy teaching my children about African American History. My 9 yr old son wanted to go. He enjoyed it.
