Things To Do
Visitors are encouraged to drive the historic route from Selma, AL to Montgomery, AL.
Selma Interpretive Center serves as the Welcome Center to the trail located at the foot of the Edmund Pettus Bridge. The Interpretive Center offers a 25-minute film, exhibits, and bookstore. The Selma Interpretive Center opened on March 2, 2011.
Lowndes Interpretive Center opened its doors to the public on August 26, 2006 as was the first of three planned National Park Service visitor centers along the Trail route. The Interpretive Center is located midway between Selma and Montgomery in White Hall. Once inside visitors can view a 25-minute film titled, "Never Lose Sight of Freedom", hear voices of the March, and touch and feel interactive exhibits--these are just a few of the experiences available in the Interpretive Center.
Montgomery Interpretive Center will open at a future date.
Contact Selma/Dallas or Montgomery Chamber of Commerce for other recreational and historical sites.
