The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute takes visitors through the struggle and history of the American Civil Rights Movement. Chronicling about a century of history, this museum is an educational opportunity that all ages appreciate.

Part of Birmingham’s Civil Rights District, the institute neighbors important landmarks from the movement’s history including 16th Street Baptist Church and Kelly Ingram Park.

The museum is organized with a clear path for visitors to follow, allowing them to stop and learn about past events, and oral histories and video footage take patrons through a chronological documentation.

The institute is also affiliated with the Smithsonian Affiliation program, which allows the museum to attain long-term loans of exhibits.
