  • The museum has a good overview of the Selma-Montgomery March. There was a lot of specific information about the many people involved--much more than I could read.  more »
  • An slightly out of date guidebook lead us to the old address for this museum, but that just meant we had a chance to walk across the famous Edmund Pettus Bridge to find it. Unfortunately the water had...  more »

  • A terrific Museum. The staff is top-notch. Well-versed in the local history of the Voting Rights struggle. They actually interviewed hundreds of individuals who campaign for equal voting rights during the 1960s. Those testimonies are directly integrated into the tours.
  • Great history! We passed through Selma and stopped at the Edmund Pettus bridge to relive history a bit. We stumbled on this museum and adored it! For only 6 bucks each, we got to help support a great thing for historic community. I learned stuff I never knew that day, it's really awful they don't teach us most of this in school. Definitely recommend for any history buff but Selma should be visited by everyone. If we don't learn from our past we are doomed to repeat it. Go see this awesome museum!
  • I love this place! Its so full of History! I wish more businesses open up downtown to liven it up
  • I love it because Our Ancestors and the people fought for us to vote and I Salute them and feel very grateful to be there to appreciate what they have done.
  • Good history, but seemed a little run down. Had a great conversation with a local woman, the people were great.
