We came here in 2009 when this museum was just getting started, but saw that it had potential. When we came back this time, it was immensely more complete. Such a sad, frightening, and anger provoking subject, but still a positive experience. The manager of...More

I saw a sign for this museum on my way to Clarksdale and had to stop. Emmett Till has always haunted me both because his murder was so unspeakably gruesome, but also because it happened about two months before my (white) mom was born. I...More

This is a small museum off the beaten track--but well worth the trip. It is in the town where Emmett Till was staying when he got kidnapped and murdered. The museum has a short film and then many local artifacts that make this tragic history...More

If you really want to get into the Emmett Till story, this is ground zero. This place should be on the National Register but instead is suffering from no support. Still, these folks have done wonders in telling the story with a few artifacts and...More

This is a moving museum which is well worth a visit if you are in the vicinity. We thought it was shut, but someone quickly appeared to let us in. The story told by the museum is shocking, but needs to be remembered. The people...More

Coming from the UK, the US Civil Rights go hand in hand when researching Blues & Soul music. The Emmitt Till story stuck in my head, & what with Glendora being the birthplace of Sonny Boy Williamson 2nd, I made certain I'd pay a visit....More

I happened upon this museum on my way to Memphis, I was not ready for what I saw. To see the place where Emmitt Till was beaten and murdered brought on very strong emotions. This is a place that every one should make a point...More

I travelled to the USA in order to learn about the Civil Rights Movement on the ground where it actually occurred. While I knew about Emmett Till before I got to Glendora, being on the ground where the incident occurred was worth the detour from...More
