Most People Don’t Know North Carolina Is Home To The International Civil Rights Museum – And It’s A Must-Visit

Most North Carolinians (outside of Greensboro) probably aren’t aware that our state is home to an International Civil Rights Museum that marks the most important sit-ins in the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s. The movement began decades before the Greensboro sit-ins took place from February to July of 1960, but the Greensboro sit-ins were instrumental in spurring lasting changes.

Have you visited the International Civil Rights Museum in Greensboro yet? What are you waiting for? The center is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Walk-ins are welcome. Docent-led tours are available, but should be scheduled in advance.

While you’re in Greensboro, pay a visit to this bog garden that’s like something from a story book, and then go have the best burger ever at Emma Key’s!

Address: 134 S Elm St, Greensboro, NC 27401, USA
