This was our favorite site during our Montgomery visit. Our guide was excellent and gave shared anecdotes associated the history of the MIA and the bus boycott that you won't find in history books.

Atlanta has the MLK Center, but the best and most important parts of MLKs early civil rights history happened in Montgomery. Now with the new lynching museum, Montgomery us a must stop for a true US civil rights history tour.

This place is authentic, it feels, smells (in a good way!) and looks very much as it did half a century ago. You can park your car in the back.

Informative tour. Many original pieces still in the house. I wish I could have taken pictures inside. It's quite moving to be the house.
