Civil Rights in Focus
National Civil Rights Museum,
Convention & Visitors Bureau
The National Civil Rights Museum is a must for school-aged children. It's located in the Lorraine Motel, where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated in 1968.
The first gallery may require too much reading for antsy kids, so move on to the more interactive exhibits, where you can pretend to get on a bus with Rosa Parks or sit at a 1950s drugstore counter next to other civil rights activists.
