  • Great place to feel the weight of history. The museum on the city side is top notch and very accessible. Take the time to drive around the city and see the other places connected to the March. Talk to the rangers at the museum to see if one of the people involved in the March is speaking that day.
  • There is a lot of history with this bridge. A lot of courage and motivation to push to not accept anything in life but to push forward to make a change. My husband and I went on our first date by this bridge 26 years ago. He passed on 3-23-2018 & was buried 4-7-2018 after the funeral I took our children to the bridge where it was lit up. They saw the beauty out of all the struggle our ancestors went through to get us where we are today.
  • I participated in my First Historical March across the bridge, and it was totally Awesome!!!! This is a Great place to take your children to learn more about the Civil Rights Movement!!! A must for people of All Walks of Life!!!
  • Was very cool to go back in time and see it with my own eyes, it's where it all started.
  • A visit to the bridge and the Interpretive center help to make the powerful events of Bloody Sunday come alive.
