We were given a tour of the church by a fellow named Rodney Gilliam. He was informed, answered our questions thoughtfully and with grace. It was a deeply moving experience.

In early January, 2017, President Obama issued a proclamation establishing the Birmingham Civil Rights National Monument which includes the 16th Street Baptist Church. This has increased the funding available for maintenance and renovations. The museum is free and is organized into a timeline of events. The Wales Window and the pipe organ in the sanctuary are not to be missed. I highly recommend the ~45 minute tour which includes videos and additional commentary by the Park Service tour guide. Our guide, Jennifer, added so much to what we learned about the church history and specifically the bombing. She had recently met the 5th little girl, Sarah Collins Rudolph, who survived the blast. We also had the honor of meeting and chatting with the pastor of the church (since 2002) Reverend Arthur Price, Jr. Our visit was a very educational and moving experience. NOTE: If you collect National Park Passport stamps, you can get one here!

My visit to the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham was amazing. The tour guide Mr. Russell Gilliam was so knowledgeable about the church and the civil rights movement. He was so friendly and so passionate about his job and my well being. He could answer any questions asked about the church and the movement. I recommend that Mr Gilliam be given some type of monetary recognition for all that he does. I really appreciate Mr Gilliam. It should be noted that this is my first time ever recognizing someone on Tripadvisor. It was an honor to have Mr Gilliam as my tour guide.

Unfortunately because of COVID, the church was not open for tours, but quite honestly, just being in the location and walking the outside was enough. Emotionally it's a tough place to visit, but absolutely necessary. I was happy to give my 13 year old a history lesson and explain what had happened there. An absolute must if you are in the area.

The church was closed for renovations but I am glad we went a little out of the way to visit the church and the park across the street.

It is quite literally ground zero for the Civil Rights movement. We took our children so they could have a better understanding of what happened a few decades ago here in our own country.

This site was bombed and several young girls lost their lives, there were also 2 other bombings the same day. The walk through park gave an interesting depiction of the events with photos and statues of the events in the park.

Hopefully we kids will remember .....

Side note: We did get approached by homeless folks but they were not aggressive. Lock your vehicle and pay attention to what you are doing and you will be fine. During the day we were fine, with 3 kids.

The church is architecturally beautiful. Very similar to two of the other Baptist churches in Birmingham. They must’ve been done by the same architect. I’m sure when the church will re-open to the public.

I decided to see this Baptist Church because of the sad history. I’m glad I had the chance to go by.

Even though I couldn't go inside, it was very important to me to pay homage to the brave people who used this church as the base for civil rights activity and to honor the four young girls killed there by a Ku Klux Klan bomb. If you care about the Civil Rights Movement, it is an important place. And since it is right across the street from the Civil Rights Institute and Kelly Ingram Park you can visit them all on the same day.

We stopped there after visiting the Civil Rights Institute. We were not able to go in, but walked around the building and read the memorial placards. Is a continuation of the story you hear about in the Institute, so should be part of your visit.
