Explore this informative museum in the town of Selma.

The National Voting Rights Museum and Institute is located in Selma, Alabama. You can reach the museum by driving across the Edmund Pettus bridge to the other side of the Alabama River. Its location has historical significance since it was the site of "Bloody Sunday" on March 7, 1965. Inside the museum, you will learn about significant events of the civil rights movement in America and see various galleries and exhibits. Admission is affordable at less than $10 per person. You can also book a combination tour that gives you entry to the Slavery and Civil War Museum nearby. 

The emotional peak of the Civil Rights Movement occurred during the Selma to Montgomery marches, with the first of these marches ending in tragedy. The last of these marches lasted for five days, and the protestors finally reached their destination in Montgomery, Alabama (51 miles away). Martin Luther King Jr. gave a speech on the state capitol steps, known as the "How long, not long" speech. If you love American history, be sure to visit the National Voting Rights Museum and Institute in Selma, Alabama.
