  • This National Site is a top 5 of understanding by video, viewing and by being in the 60's time tunnel experiencing the civil disturbances of that time. It is free and welcome to all.  more »

  • Had a very nice time here while visiting. You could spend almost all day reading all the information that is here. Disagree with the BLM stuff for sale, because they're not always civil  more »

  • A very well done historic site, with loads of information, more than we had time for! The building itself is lovely and perfectly preserved, and the rangers posted inside were eager to answer questions. Good for a brief visit or a multi-hour in-depth journey, this stop is worth your attention!
  • This site is incredibly well done. I was particularly captivated by the Auditorium presentation and the room displaying the 5 cases in the Brown decision. These were both very powerful presentations on the Civil Rights movement and the Brown v Board case. Our Park ranger Mynesha was amazing! Very helpful and knowledgeable. Bravo guys!
  • This was an incredibly eye opening experience. Everything is perfectly organized so the amount of information isn't overwhelming. We even had the opportunity to witness a Nationalization ceremony for new citizens. They've got a great book/gift store with good products for adults and kids.
  • This NPS Monument needs to be on more people's list of great American places. The greeter / guide / docent (Dexter Armstrong), is not only knowledgeable & passionate, but engaging and articulate. More people learning about our history are needed to realize our potential, that our founders hoped would develop over time. My recent rude awakening came about as a result of my sister recommending "Slavery by Another Name." That audiobook was both fascinating and upsetting. Our education system needs to speak more of our uncomfortable truths. The Wall Street Journal reporter delivered his vital message factually, and with passion. Please consider spending some time at the Brown v. Board of Education monument. You & your family will be the richer for the experience. The manager engaged me in a brief discussion as well. They need more visitors!
  • Quite a sobering experience visiting here. Well worth visiting and reflecting. Thank you for preserving this important historical site. If you are passing through I highly recommend a visit. Allow 1 to 2 hours. Kids will enjoy the Junior Ranger program.
