  • Nice memorial to persons killed in the civil rights struggles. Beautiful interior. Nice short movie. Perhaps a little to slick in the presentations.  more »
  • This place is a good place to visit. I feel it wasn't as detailed as it should have been. It was very small and it didn't display all it could have. I was disappointed with the lack of content.  more »

  • Run by the SPLC. There is a wonderful monument outside designed by the same woman who did the Vietnam Wall. A water feature with names and key events from the civil rights struggles carved into it. Inside there is a substantial display with photos and brief summaries of the 40 people murdered during the early movement along with other quite helpful educational materials about the times. There is also a nice short film in a modest sized theater. A mandatory stop for anyone wanting to learn all they can about the Movement.
  • I enjoyed my visit at The Civil Rights Memorial Center. So much to see... I was in awe of all the displayed history. Only $2.00 for admission. Tour isn't as long as some of the other museum's. It is a treasure find especially for children who wear out easy. What a learning experience for all generations!! Friendly staff of people.
