One of the most important objectives of the National Voting Rights Museum is to commemorate the bloody struggle that took place in Selma, Alabama as Americans struggled for equal treatment and the right to vote on the 7th of March, 1965. Established in 1993, the museum is the only one of its kind in the entire globe, with a long-standing memorial dedicated to the continuous struggle of African Americans for the freedom and right to vote. One of the most interesting exhibits at the museum would be the Footprints to Freedom, which showcases various artefacts about the country?s voting history as well as footprints of molded cast that belong to the countless people who joined the march which started from Selma and went all the way to Montgomery.

Visitors with a love for history are encouraged to enhance their visit to the museum by joining any of the community forums and living history projects managed by the National Voting Rights Museum. Also available from the museum are Black Belt Heritage tours.
