  • Description
    Rosa Parks Museum

    Located at Troy University at Montgomery Campus, at the same spot where Rosa Parks was arrested for her refusal to move to the back of the bus, the Rosa Parks Museum is a memorial and education center dedicated to the life of civil rights activist Rosa Parks and the Montgomery Bus Boycott.

    Learn about the social and political climates of Montgomery in the 1950’ as well as the events which led to the boycott and discover the courageous people who were behind it.

    Explore historical artifacts, such as police reports and court documents, an original 1950s city bus, a restored periodical station wagon, artworks and the original fingerprint arrest record of Rosa Parks.

    You will also witness the Parks’ arrest, meet Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, attend a civil rights meeting at Holt Street Baptist Church, and view a life-size statue of Parks sitting on a bus bench.

    The Cleveland Avenue Time Machine will take you back to the 19th century, where you’ll witness how segregation affected daily life.

    Enjoy the current and permanent exhibits and participate in special events, such as Diversity Dialogue, Rosa Parks’ Birthday Celebration, and Female Activism Community Forum.
