Medgar and Myrlie Evers Home Extends Days, Hours of Operation

Explore the Medgar & Myrlie Evers Home National Monument's extended hours, offering immersive Civil Rights history.

The Medgar and Myrlie Evers Home National Monument will extend its hours, providing more opportunities for visitors to engage with the landmark.

Beginning May 29, the site will operate from Tuesday to Saturday, 9 am to 4 pm. The monument offers an immersive experience into the history of the Civil Rights Movement.

Medgar Evers, the inaugural field secretary for the NAACP in Jackson, met his tragic end on June 12, 1963. His modest home, the site of his assassination, stands as a poignant symbol of the era's struggles for freedom and opportunity, nestled within a neighborhood reflecting the Civil Rights Movement's aspirations.

As a museum situated within a historic district, the renovated structure serves as a testament to the sacrifices made in Mississippi during this transformative period. It forms a vital link in a chain of landmarks preserving the state's complex history.

Guided tours are available throughout the day, with groups of 10 or more encouraged to reserve in advance by calling 601-345-7211.
