    A must see in the historical city of Montgomery, Alabama. The museum has the most energetic and interactive museum guides. They were all very knowledgeable and informative of events that took place during the time period. The timeline exhibits made you feel like you were in the moment. The guides just enhanced this with their "story telling" manor. You will find yourself in stages of shock, awe, sorrow...to feeling humble. Dont forget to visit the gift shop inside. It also has some amazing finds. I will be forever thankful to the ladies of the Rosa...Read More

    Clever and informative presentation of Ms. Parks's simple act and the effect it had on the civil rights movement.

    Visited with my then seven-year-old daughter in July of 2011. She was tired and cranky. It was hot out, and we'd been walking around a bit. She had a little bit of a fit when we got inside.

    Then, we started the tour. Just of the Bus Boycott section. The initial films were great, and our tour guide was sharp as a tack, and gave a great presentation as we walked through the displays. My daughter was completely taken in, and still speaks of the experience.

    I highly recommend a visit.

    Better than expected. The kids said they liked it. What more can you ask? It may help the kids to have a general idea about the basic story line of events in the civil war and civil rights movements. Although the "kids museum" is somewhat interactive, it is very talk at you knowledge.
