One of the best reasons to travel with children is to give them learning opportunities that they won’t get in school. The museum at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute is an excellent place to teach your children about the history of the Civil Rights Movement in America, the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., and the ongoing struggles that African American people and other minorities face in America today. While this destination certainly isn’t a joyful romp, it will be a memorable and valuable experience for your whole family.
