The Rosa Parks Museum in Montgomery, Alabama is located at the site of Rosa Parks' historic arrest in 1955 for refusing to give up her bus seat to a white man, a catalyst for the Montgomery Bus Boycott and a pivotal moment in the civil rights movement. Housed in the former Montgomery Fair department store, the museum features exhibits, multimedia presentations, and an immersive replica of the bus where Parks took her stand. Beyond recounting Parks' story, the museum provides a broader context of the civil rights movement, offering a timeline of key events and leaders. With a commitment to education, the museum offers programs aimed at fostering a deeper understanding of civil rights history. (Submitted by Anthony Von Plinsky)
