There is a $5 admission to the museum. The museum is no longer located in downtown Selma, as indicated by the map and other references. It is located on the east side of the Edmund Pettus Bridge on the south side of U.S. 80, so don't get lost. It is almost hard to find because the sign was somewhat small.
The museum provides internal details about the organization of the voting rights movement in Selma not detailed at the Lowndes County Interpretive Center near White Hall (that is one great museum). There are tribute displays to those at the Baptist Churches and those who came to Selma to support the voting rights marches. There are simulations of a prison cell, the churches, etc. Just a few people work here, and they are building the displays themselves. They are knowledgeable and dedicated to preserving the history and presenting the present from the eyes of those who were rejected from American political processes. Not for children, but great for adults and older teens.
