This was such a nice place. Everything is clean and fresh. The exhibits were very interesting. You can tell that there was a lot of thought put into the way things were displayed. Lots of details about Charlotte as well as surrounding areas. I wish that there was a cashier available inside the gift shop, because we had to wait... More

I don't believe that there's much to do in Charlotte, so it was nice to see some small museums are available. I enjoy learning history, and thought this was a good place to start in learning about our new state.

Main exhibit of the Museum has not changed since I first started coming here several years ago. It depicts the south (Charlotte) from 1800's to present. Includes several very nice rooms depicting establishments such as early department stores, appliances, cotton Mill to segregated lunch counter. Parking is right next store with the 7'th Ave. Market near by for refreshments. I... More

Went here with an out of town visitor. The museum focuses on the major transitions that have led Charlotte to becoming a major city in the US. I highly suggest this museum for current and future residents.

A wonderful way to understand what kind of city Charlotte has grown to become. A good place for first time to Charlotte visitors. Tom Hanchett runs a terrific Museum with always changing and meaningful exhibits.

We were looking for something to do during the day before our flight back to California. We didn't want to go to a museum that glorified the Conferacy and read the reviews and decided to go to the museum. The emphasis on the frontier and the development of the Charlotte area were excellent. This is a quality museum and well... More

There is nothing like learning history and facts. Touching the cotton and seeing the different devices used to manipulate it were very eye opening. My children's eyes were wide open and they were full of questions which is how I know they were learning, great experience.
