This memorial center is just one floor in the round - much smaller than we were expecting and so we didn't spend much time there. It contains information of people who have died in the fight for civil rights and as such it is moving....More

This museum is well worth the visit. Well done and informative. The movie is excellent and I found the whole place helpful in engaging my children in important discussions about standing up for what is right.

This place is a chilling memorial to those who lost their lives during the Civil Rights movement, and a vivid reminder of what hatred can turn human beings into. The short movie brought tears to my eyes. This is a must stop in Montgomery for...More

It is nice. There is not much on the bottom floor since they are working on something down there. We didn't anyone working down there. But there is a lot of history there to see and read. There is 3 floors total.

Worth a visit. Memorial to and raises awareness to slain individuals during early Civil Rights struggle. Fountain designed by Mia Lin (designed Vietnam Memorial). It’s also a call to action in one’s life to fight prejudice in all forms.

This Maya Lin sculpture (Vietnam Memorial) is very powerful. It honors regular people victimized by home-grown terrorism. Part of the Southern Poverty Law Center and across the street from Dexter Church where the 1955 bus boycott was organized after Rosa Parks' arrest 62 years ago.
