Rosa Parks' Bus
Where've I been? Sitting in the seat behind the seat that Rosa Parks wouldn't give up back in 1955, listening to a recording of her telling her story, among other places.
Has to be one of the most moving museum exhibits I've ever seen. Click here to read an interesting article about how the bus was saved from the scrapyard and eventually ended up at the Henry Ford Museum in Detroit, where it is currently a central piece of the museum's With Liberty And Justice For All exhibit.
