We expected it to be a larger museum. But what we did see was very emotional. The movie was good and made you relive the cruelties,horrors and senseless murders. The pledge for tolerance wall and the black water circle outside were touching. Admission is $2 pp.

Th actual memorial was under renovation, so that was disappointing, but the emotional impact was still felt. The Center is a must...the movie was riveting and heartbreaking. Wow.

Staff was great!

It's very small but it's something that shouldn't be missed. It's a memorial to those who were brutally killed simply for the colour of their skin. It tells their stories and makes sure they're not forgotten. The movie is very good too.

Apart from the moving reminder of the cost to the black community of fighting segregation, the security required at the Center to guard against the continuing dangers posed by far right organisations was also a reminder that the battle is far from over.
