(WMC-TV) - The National Civil Rights Museum will reopen Friday after a massive renovation.

I had the opportunity to tour the museum recently as the finishing touches were being put on the renovation.

I did so with a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes.

The National Civil Rights Museum is a treasure in the Mid-South.

If you haven't visited the museum, I beg you to make plans to do so. If you have children, please bring them with you.

Even if you have toured the museum before, I promise it will be worth your time to visit again and see the existing and new exhibits.

For the team who put their sweat equity into this renovation, this has been a labor of love and it shows.

I would love to hear about your experience when you get to go visit the museum. Go to Facebook and like my page, A Better Mid-South and leave me a message there and you can always email me at abettermidsouth dot com.

The National Civil Rights Museum makes this A Better Mid-South.
