Located in the newly restored 1906 Old Mt. Zion Church, the Albany Civil Rights Museum and Institute uses oral histories, photographs, documents and artifacts, and educational exhibits to detail the civil rights struggle, ranging from voter registration to nonviolent protest, song, economic boycott and legal action.

Experience a living history of freedom songs each month on the second Saturday with the museum's Freedom Singers.
