This tribute to the "Mother of the Civil Rights Movement" honors Rosa Parks, the African-American woman who, in 1955, sparked the civil rights movement by refusing to give her bus seat to a white man. The museum helps visitors relive this tumultuous era with a video, artifacts, historical documents, a lifesize statue of Rosa Parks and a replica of the bus in which she sat that day.

We visited the Rosa Parks Museum with our 2 teenage daughters while driving through the area. It was a worthwhile stop. They did a great job of capturing the emotion and risk that Rosa Parks took in taking her stand on the bus. We spent...More

We didn't the actual arrest site. The bus is actually inside the museum . If there is any way you can stay until the next day the museum is fabulous.
