Birmingham Civil Rights Institute

Highly recommended
The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute houses a self-directed museum and memorial (1992, J. Max Bond, Jr.). It guides visitors through a series of engrossing multimedia and 3D exhibits that bring the drama and tumult of the American civil rights movement to life. The exhibitions, some quite difficult to look at, are in chronological order and situate the movement in the international context of the fight for human rights.
