Trip Planner: USA / North Carolina / Greensboro / International Civil Rights Center & Museum
Visit one of the most crucial places for the struggle against racial segregation and learn about the history of the civil rights movement at International Civil Rights Center & Museum. The museum's historic building once housed the Woolworth store where the famous Greensboro sit-ins took place in 1960. The protest initiated by four black students quickly gained nationwide support and sparked a series of similar acts that ultimately led to a major triumph in the battle for equality. See the authentic lunch counter where the sit-ins happened, watch reenactments, explore the multimedia collection, and browse the collection of artifacts. You'll learn not only about events in Greensboro, but the whole history of segregation and the fight to end it. Both self-guided and docent-led tours of the museum are available. Discover how to plan a Greensboro trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

Our family visited the Civil Rights Center & Museum in December 2022. Initially we were disappointed that only the Filmed Tours followed by a walk through of the Museum's galleries was available...

I wish photography was allowed, but I fully respect why it is not. This was a powerful trip. The tour guide we had was amazing. While many parts were not captioned, the staff worked with me to provide access to my deaf peers. The counter is an amazing experience, as is the entire tour. Go when you can. I am sad to see how few white folks were there to absorb and learn. We must learn from our past and that includes learning from our painful truths.
Wow. Such a powerful place with an incredibly important story to tell. Jeanne was our tour guide and she was fantastic! The subject matter is difficult, especially the hall of shame, but it’s a story that needs to be told. I’m so glad I went and visited this historic place.
