This museum was such a surprise. Gorgeous and so moving. It is small and can be done in under an hour but it is packed with so much information and presented in a good way-highly recommend!

It's outdoors so you can visit any time during the day. You can easily walk to it from the Dexter Avenue church where Dr. King was the pastor. The memorial is designed to inspire.

The Civil Rights Memorial Center is a thought-provoking place. It highlights a number of people who gave their lives in the pursuit of civil rights equality. It is a must see for the area.

This is a strong memorial, with a very high production value. The introductory film is impactful and eye-opening. The museum, both inside and out, are emotionally draining, but worth the journey. It is very hard to read through the names in the memorial fountain out...More
