Owner description: This historic museum traces the journey of the civil rights advocates of the 1950s and 60s, who changed the course of American history. The struggle for equality for Black Americans is chronicled here, from the Jim Crow laws in the 1800s to the freedom rides, sit-ins and demonstrations of the 1960s.

“Well done”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

Exhibits are in excellent taste and well done, historically accurate, appealing and educational. There is adequate flow of visitor traffic, and something for every age. We enjoyed the beautiful art work on exhibit.

Some parts were emotional but well worth it. Every person of color need to visit and learn and reflect.

“You HAVE to visit here”
Reviewed August 15, 2014 via mobile

This is wonderfully laid out and informative. They have a really good combination of video, audio and visual material which you walk around, I spent nearly 3 hours reading and watching and I found it very moving. Please do not miss visiting and talking to the staff who work here

“Incredibly moving”
Reviewed August 13, 2014 via mobile

This was by far one of my favorite museums I have ever been in. I was skeptical at first, but after the short film you watch at first, it pulls you in. I'm not an emotional guy, especially in museums, but this was the first to move me. It's location is perfect for the story it tells as well. I highly recommend this to everybody. Must see
