The International Civil Rights Center & Museum (ICRCM), located in Greensboro, N.C., is an archival center, collecting museum and teaching facility devoted to the international struggle for civil and human rights. This national landmark and national site of conscience celebrates the nonviolent protests of the 1960 Greensboro sit-ins that served as a catalyst in the civil rights movement. Our vision is to memorialize the courageous stand of the Greensboro Four as they launched, for posterity, the sit-in movement Feb. 1, 1960. We hope that the ICRCM, with its focus on the sit-in activities at the F.W. Woolworth lunch counter in Greensboro in 1960, will inspire the vigilance and fortify the spirit of all oppressed people to step forward in the ongoing struggle for human freedom.

This exceeded my expectations. Our tour guide, Cassandra, was friendly and knowledgeable. There is much more to experience here than just the lunch counter. An excellent tour!

So much of the Civil Rights Movement is preserved here and a whole lot more is presented. And the whole story is depicted in an amazingly graphic and dramatic way. The visitor is escorted through a series of galleries which convincingly tells the history of...More

This is one of the best museum visits our family has ever experienced. After paying a reasonable entrance fee (discounts for kids and seniors), we were welcomed into a tour with Dillon. His walking tour — about an hour long — was thorough, brilliant and...More

We have visited sites important to the Civil Rights Movement in Alabama and Washington DC but always wanted to see the site of the lunch counter sit-in. This was very informative and the guide was very well prepared.
