I had stopped by the visitor center to get a map and an idea of the place. Then I started walking around when I came across the bus stop where the famous Rosa Parks movement started. There is a sign which explains the location and I was quite awe struck to have stumbled across it on a leisurely walk around... More

The tour guide enriched the experience and the interactive format was well worth the entrance fee. I strongly recommend the tour, if you stop in Montgomery.

This was a great experience to stand at this site. I wish we had more time to experience the museum.

I felt like this could have been better memorialized. All there is, is a sign out front of the museum that talks about the bus boycott. Nothing really stating or showing where exactly it was that she was arrested.

The museum tour is very well put together. Very thought provoking and educational. We were educated on back history and what happened after the arrest.

Given the contributions that Rosa Parks and other fearless people made to promote Civil Rights and equality in this country, no trip in the area is complete to see the location where Ms. Parks made her stand by sitting down. The arrest site is adjacent to the Rosa Parks Library and Museum (which is sadly closed on Sundays). When traveling... More

The actual beginning of the civil rights movement-a marker where Rosa Parks got on the bus when she refused to give up her seat. It's inspiring that Montgomery is proud of it's history whether it be good are tainted at times. The entire walking tour from here is worth taking.

A historical marker indicating the bus stop where Rosa refused to give up her seat. Right near the Rosa Parks Museum. Great way to begin the museum experience.

As part of a walking tour of the 1960's cicil rights movement, this is one stop along the way that has a great view up Dexter to the Capitol building.
