MLK Jr. B-Day, 2014 we drove down from Huntsville to do something special and educate ourselves. Upon arrival we found that many many others had the same idea, the place was growing an ever lengthening line. It turns out this day marked their new policy to be open for business on Mondays. It was also free of charge but with donations requested. Normally admission would have cost us $12 per person. I urge all travelers passing through Birmingham to stop in and learn, I rate it over the US Space and Rocket Museum in Huntsville in terms of historical significance to not just Alabama but the entire U.S. There was so much that I didn't know before my visit. The only area I found uninteresting was the art gallery of paintings and sculptures for sale, it simply wasn't anything I found visibly stimulating. I recommend this to all families who want to get through to their kids the impact that textbooks lack. This place is powerful. I found myself getting choked up over and over.
