Ever since its inception in 1992, this historical site is a stirring reminder of the Supreme Court's verdict to eradicate the presence of racism in public schools. The site was formerly Monroe Elementary School, which, along with Sumner Elementary School, which formed the centerpiece of the controversy spurring the case. Now located on the site of the school, it conducts guided tours of the facility educating visitors about the story and significance of the place. The site also screens award-winning movies, as well as imparts abundant information about events that led to the iconic verdict. Strongly upholding the principles of rights and oneness, this historic site is a moving homage to the African American struggle for racial equality.... less

This museum is a history lesson broken up into two sections of the old school building. One half is the history of Brown vs. Board and the other half is about civil rights. Lots of displays and exhibits to tell the story of both. Admission was free and plenty of free parking. Nice that it was open on a Sunday because many things are closed in Topeka. We spent an hour and probably could have stayed longer.... less

We have tried to go when they say they are open, only to find it locked up tight. Don't trust what you see on the internet.I think it is set up to accommodate tours for school children. We'll keep trying because it is prominent part of the city's history.... less

    Take a few moments to explore a piece of Topeka history that had far reaching results. A very informative stop for the whole family.

    All Americans must become more aware of all aspects of Black history in our Country. This is a Site where you need to visit to gain more understanding of a major step in both Black and White History!

    The site is a restored school building. All one level it takes 1.5-2 hours to complete. Ranger staff very helpful, small gift shop.
