Not sure why the operators of this museum don't have longer hours. I would have loved to visit the inside and would have paid a reasonable fee to do it. Instead, I read the placards outside, which were just okay. The dial in tour wasn't working. The Freedom Rides were historic and this place really doesn't do this important event... More

I visited the Freedom Rides Museum on my first trip back to downtown Montgomery since I left after my junior year of high school in 1964. I was surprised at how invested the city seems to be in commemorating its status as the crucible of the civil rights struggle. The displays at the Freedom Rides Museum, the historic markers all...

The museum itself was closed for refurbishment, though our BnB host told us it is rarely open (2 days a week). This is the reason they have made a display out the front. The display is thoughtfully done. What is truly overwhelming is to stand at that Greyhound Bus station and see with your own eyes the two different doors... More

The photos and the historical content clearly brought the Freedom Riders' experiences to life. The bus station took you back in time.

This small museum packs a powerful punch. It was a moving experience because it tells the truth about the brutal conditions of life for people who were Black and how they fought to change it. Their courage and determination has inspired generations of people and continues today through the words and experiences of the participants presented here through photographs, interviews... More

IT was closed but I peeked through the front door and saw the pictures of the Freedom Riders that were stopped here In Montgomery at this old Greyhound Station where this occurred.

You must stop by for the tour. Our tour guide was very informative, encouraging, and animated. The best part is she sung to us! Great experience.

We were disappointed not to be able to get into the museum today, but just visiting the site of this incredible piece of Civil Rights history was great. The pictures and stories outside were excellent but made me want to get inside. If you want to see the museum, check the days and hours carefully.

Senior, Military and Student Discounts available. Start outside and read along the wall. Then you can go inside and pay. A tour guide will talk story with you and provide information. As you walk around the small area inside, you will be able to see more information about the freedom riders Restrooms are available as well as a "gift shop"... More
