Though it is small, the Museum has a lot of History and provides insight into what African Americans went through as they fought for equality all in the City of Savannah.
I visited this museum with a tour group and I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately we did not have enough time. There was so much to see but so little time to see everything. I will be back on my next visit to Savannah without a tour group so I can take my time to absorb the wonderful history this museum... More
I hope that most African Americans in Savannah have visited the Civil Rights Museum...(I'm not saying that it's just for African-Americans) but our people need to see what our ancestors had to endure in order to understand what we need to do to continue to make a difference in the world.

We stopped here during our African-American City Tour. Wish we had had a longer stay there. We will definitely go back again. It was fascinating. Lots of information about Savannah from the African-American perspective. Definitely worth a visit.
This was far above what I had expected. The tour director, Troy Lance was just great. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. He shared much info with us and we felt very comfortable asking him questions. I would recommend a visit to this site for people of all races. We can not make things better unless we really understand the... More
Great civil rights museum even if you're knowledgeable about the subject. It focuses almost exclusively on Savannah history and the local perspective is great. Our guide, Troy. was welcoming and very knowledgeable.
