The International Civil Rights Center & Museum (ICRCM), located in...

The International Civil Rights Center & Museum (ICRCM), located in Greensboro, N.C., is an archival center, collecting museum and teaching facility devoted to the international struggle for civil and human rights. This national landmark and national site of conscience celebrates the nonviolent protests of the 1960 Greensboro sit-ins that served as a catalyst in the civil rights movement. Our vision is to memorialize the courageous stand of the Greensboro Four as they launched, for posterity, the sit-in movement Feb. 1, 1960. We hope that the ICRCM, with its focus on the sit-in activities at the F.W. Woolworth lunch counter in Greensboro in 1960, will inspire the vigilance and fortify the spirit of all oppressed people to step forward in the ongoing struggle for human freedom.

We drove about an hour and half not sure what to expect, but it turned out to be an excellent and moving experience. The hour tour was well organized with incredible images, artifacts, and the Woolworth counter. Thanks to Dillan Tyler for an incredible tour. Your knowledge and passion for civil rights moved me. Thank you for such a rewarding... More

My friend and I took the guided tour with Elijah and it was fantastic. I was concerned it might have been awkward somehow as it was only the two of us on the tour on a slow Wednesday afternoon, but Elijah delivered history to us brilliantly, passionately, and with a perfect blend of professionalism and humanity that such a painful...

This is not worth it, even though it's historical, sorry to say but it's true, so I do not recommend

This was a day trip for us, yet a legacy of Many Treacherous days and Years for Africans unwillingly transported to America to become slaves to cruel dominating white males for their own prosperity. The museum traces some events, because there are Far Too Many that occurred during the years of Slavery/JimCrow/Civil Rights Era. It also shows the Historic contributions... More

This is a must see museum when in the Greensboro area. I went with my daughter who is a student at NC A&T. What an awesome experience. Our guide, Robin, is amazing. My only regret is that we had to leave sooner than desired so that I could make a mid-afternoon flight. We could have spent another 2 or 3... More

We took a small group of 5th graders to tour the museum. They have studied civil rights in school some and we thought it would be a good follow up for them. We expected them to last about an hour. We took a tour with Kayla. She was AMAZING! She spoke to the kids without watering down the content and... More

I visited between tours and Jeanne took me around to see the exhibits and videos. Much appreciated the graciousness. Of most interest was the lunch counter. The videos enhance the experience so watch them. The museum design is straightforward and effective. Not easy to see and hear the stories, but truthful. Worth the visit to learn the history and see... More
