Birmingham Civil Rights National Park

In January 2017, President Barak Obama issued a proclamation designating the Birmingham Civil Rights District as a national monument. The designation is expected to bring a national spotlight to the pivotal role Birmingham played in the struggle for racial equality in the 1960s.

FBI-LEEDA is working with the BCRI and 16th Street Baptist Church for an immersive presentation for 2018 conference attendees on the history of the civil rights movement in Birmingham.

Vulcan Park and Museum

You can spot the Roman god at Vulcan Park and Museum 360 degrees of Birmingham, his CrossFit arm raising a spear as if he were planning to carve his name in the sky. At the 10-acre park, climb 159 steps or ride the elevator for a closer glimpse of the 56-foot-tall stud — a hand. In the museum, learn about the world’s largest cast-iron statue that still turns heads more than 110 years later. 

Visitors to Vulcan Park can enjoy a picnic on the grounds, view an art exhibit at the Linn Henley Gallery, and enjoy a panoramic view of Birmingham's skyline
