This museum did a very good job at documenting history. There were some very moving exhibits. It is not very large but worth the trip

It was not what I expected. I thought it would be just about the Civil Rights Movement. It is so much more. The lunch counter simulation was emotional. I think it should be required by all. I learned so much.

It was interesting and emotional at times to see the history and how things were especially in the 60's and before. Loved looking at Martin Luther King's personal documents. Everyone needs to visit.

This museum should be a required visit for each American. the 2 floors on US Civil Rights was amazingly powerful. And the 3rd floor which focused on Global Human Rights was an important reminder that much work still needs to be done.

I found this an outstanding museum. It was very brave and direct in addressing the horrors of the segregation era. Right from the start, it exposes you to what people of colour faced and had to deal with in that era. It was sobering, moving...More

This is a must see for everyone. Well set out. It gives you the story of the civil rights movement in segregated America. It is extremely moving and frightening that this was all happening in our life time in a ‘civilised’ county. A reminder to...More
