  • What would you expect from a museum that is run by a family for profit? I was told that there actually was a better museum about the March in the city of Selma.
  • My family and I visited this museum.We had an amazing experience! The tour guide Sam was also amazing.We will definitely visit again.
  • I visited this museum in 1999, when it was at the other building. I was taken on a tour by Joanne Bland. She was wonderful. I enjoyed seeing the footprints, the shrine to the slain civil rights workers, the infamous "Colored" signs (I had my picture taken in front of them with Joanne, a beautiful African American woman). I loved how everybody made me feel right at home. I had special permission to stand on the rickety old balcony to have my picture taken with the Edmond Pettus Bridge behind me. The tour and employees were wonderful. Go see it and enjoy a positive look at American history. Equality is for everybody.
