This is a strong memorial, with a very high production value. The introductory film is impactful and eye-opening. The museum, both inside and out, are emotionally draining, but worth the journey. It is very hard to read through the names in the memorial fountain out...More

This museum is so well done both inside and out. The fountain in the front is beautiful with a timeline on it and the inside tells the stories so well. The short film they show is also very moving. This is such a great tribute...More

A moving memorial to the men and women who sacrificed their lives to make the world a better place. The center itself is a quiet oasis of contemplation and remembrance. The memorial by Maya Lin is a work of art.

I'll be traveling through Montgomery on a Sunday, and I'm thinking of stopping at the fountain and the outside of the parsonage. Are there any memorials that are open on Sundays? Are there other things I can do with my kids? They have both seen A Long Walk Home and are fascinated (and horrified) by this chapter in our history. It seems a shame not to at least stop on our way to Missouri!
