The courthouse where Till’s murder trial took place has been preserved as a museum and interpretive center, with the mission of telling the story of the tragedy and pointing a way toward racial healing. Using a combination of storytelling and art, the center remembers Till while painting a harmonious vision for the future. Visitors can book tours of the Tallahatchie County Courthouse and the interpretive center for $5. The center also hosts multiple initiatives in Till’s memory, including the Emmett Till Seed Project and the Day of Forgiveness.
