This is a charming little break from the hot sun as you walk through the shops and cafe's in Montgomery. If you walk there it's part of the walk along the river, if you drive, they have shaded parking in the back. Don't forget to check out the architecture, historical facts, pictures and the gift shops inside.

We found the staff very friendly & helpful. They were able to give us excellent ideas of what to do & where to go. There is free tourist parking behind the building & they can provide a free parking permit for the Capital area.

The lady who we saw was very helpful in suggesting places to visit. We already had a list and she mostly confirmed what we thought we wanted to see. Oddly, a couple of days later she saw us walking along a road outside town, recognised us and stopped to check we were not lost and didn't need a lift. We... More

The people in the visitors center were very helpful. Be sure and park around back (it's free) not in the hotel parking across the street in front of the visitors center. (not free) Nice video about Montgomery also.

Both ladies who assisted us on Monday morning, July 25, 2016, were friendly and helpful. We were provided a parking pass to the Capitol since it was hot and the mile walk would have not been comfortable. We were given suggestions of places to see in the few hours we were spending in Montgomery. We viewed a well done short... More

A good place to plan your visit to Montgomery. The staff were very helpful and have plenty of information. It is a starting point for the civil rights heritage trail. I picked up maps and leaflets here and there is a short video you can watch which shows you highlights of places to visit. There is also a gift shop.... More

The old Union Station is a great place to start your tour of Montgomery, just like thousands of travelers in the past probably did. Gone is the hustle and bustle, smoke from the trains and energy but this is still a great old building. Unfortunately I landed here a little later on my trip but they are a wealth of... More

We were greeted by a wonderful lady who helped us with all our questions. Lots of useful information, a movie, and a great historical building to enjoy.
