My sister and I were driving across Alabama on highway 80 on a bee line to the beach. We rolled to a stop in a little town, looked up and there was the Edmund Pettus bridge. We just stared.

While it is stated that when the museum is closed (Friday, Saturday & Sunday), arrangements can be made to visit it. Unfortunately, nobody is answering the calls! This IIs very unprofessional and inconsiderate of the management, who has to realise that people come from different...More

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.

Located just before the Edmund Pettus bridge, this museum is both larger than I expected and much more emotionally draining. The coverage focuses on the struggle for voting rights, but it ultimately encompasses much more than that; it provides a strong overview of the movement...More

Very simple museum operated by local volunteers. Tell the grasping story of the voting rights struggle in Selma, Alabama. The Selma- Montgomery marches, the first one ending in 'Bloody Sunday', but eventually starting the final steps to right for African Americans. It's a shame that...More

$6.50 for an adult.There's a student and senior discount but I doubt that there are any beyond that, but if you wanted to phone ahead to ask, you could.
