This is the most comprehensive museum on the Civil Rights Movement in our country! The multitude of displays using an array of multi-media and "live" re-creations is captivating, keeps your interest and attention. You will learn so much. An emotional journey for all to experience.

It's wonderful that Mississippi finally has a civil rights museum, but the design and organization is chaotic and difficult to follow. It has very few artifacts and mostly consists of reading material. Too bad, since many of the museum's visitors will be schoolchildren, and it...More

We recently completed a self-designed tour of the Deep South and Mississippi Delta, visiting many Civil Rights sites and a few sites connected to/memorializing Slavery. This was one of the two reasons we made this journey.* What a superbly designed museum. The focus is Mississippi,...More

This museum was very well done. Lots of information- audio clips, movies, memorabilia and displays. Lots to read, look at and listen to. Plan on spending a few hours - I spent 3 hours and could have stayed longer (I’m a single adult though). Amazing...More
