There are two experiences here. One historic presentation about segregation and the other is the Rosa Parks story. You need about an hour and a half for both, but they’re totally worth the time. This is family friendly and such a well done presentation.

Not sure what I was exactly expecting. First we had to go outside to go the other section ("children's" but it's really for everyone). Sit in a "bus" and watch a film. When we went back to the main museum, we weren't directed and ended up going through backwards. It follows a timeline. There is a video at the beginning and a reenactment of Rosa Parks' bus ride. I learned some things throughout. There is a gift shop.

The museum has a free parking lot. There is a children's wing and the primary wing. The parking is next to the children's wing, but to pay the admission fee, you must walk around it to the primary wing. If you want to have a "1 wing" admission, you will visit only the primary wing. If you want a "2 wing" admission, you will go back to the children's wing to watch the "time machine" film. You then go upstairs to the other exhibits. The museum is an excellent portrayal of civil rights activists and proponents throughout the history of the United States. It is a compelling and worthwhile way to spend 2 or 3 hours of your time. There is a gift shop. COVID-19: you must, like the employees" wear a face covering and they request you observe social distancing.

We wandered around unable to get our bearings until I went back to the gift shop where we bought the tickets and asked what was their plan. Then a woman came and turned on a video, after which a door opened to the exhibit. It’s a nice museum and tells the story pretty well, but you have to be on your toes as the staff really don’t care all that much.
