Albany Civil Rights Movement Museum

The Albany Civil Rights Movement Museum opened in the Old Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Albany in 1998. The first mass meeting of the Albany Movement was held at the church in 1961, and in the 1990s the church building was converted into the museum. Known today as the Albany Civil Rights Institute, the museum moved to a new facility next to the church in 2008.
