1-2 hour stop in Montgomery: Old Alabama Town?

Hi all, as part of a roadtrip from Atlanta to New Orleans I am passing by Montgomery on a weekday morning. Is it worth stopping for an hour or two to have breakfast and maybe visit a site or two or is it going to be more hassle than its worth with rush hour traffic etc?

I was thinking maybe to go to Old Alabama Town and/or Rosa Parks museum?

Hi Paulo! You should definitely stop by Montgomery! Rush hour traffic isn't that bad here (mainly from 7:30-8) so you have plenty of time to enjoy yourself downtown. The Farmer's Market Cafe (315 N. McDonough Street) is good for breakfast. And just around the corner from there is Old Alabama Town (301 Columbus St.), the south's premier outdoor history museum (where I work!)... Tucker Pecans is also right there if you want to try one of our favorite local treats. The Rosa Parks Museum is, of course, awesome to visit, as well as the Civil Rights Memorial and Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church. If you decide to stop by Old Alabama Town, email me (marketing(at)oldalabamatown.com) and I'll leave a coupon at the front desk for you.

I ended up stopping in Montgomery both on the way to and from New Orleans. Went to the Farmers Market Cafe and had an excellent breakfast.

On the way back it was close to 8pm so only stopped quickly for food in the Riverfront Park area (Chinese restaurant)
