We arrived on a Sunday and it's not open! In fact there's not a lot open in Montgomery. The only thing to do of a weekend is to drive around and look at sights. Nothing is open except for the Churches.

Not ideal for families because kind of boring for children, but well done with information about martyrs of the civil rights movement. In addition, attendance supports the important continuing work of the Southern Poverty Law Center
