A very powerful tribute to the civil rights movement. The design of the building adds to the overwhelming deep feelings the memorial center exudes.

This museum is a must see when visiting Montgomery, Alabama. Stepping back to an historic era that could change one's perspective of what living under suppression was like, this museum awakened my inner core. Take the time to walk the entire circumference of the water...More
