Great multi-media exhibition for kids on history of new south post Civil War. Lots of interactive opportunities. Also had good special exhibitions on LGBT community and another on the parallels between African Americans and their Jewish counterparts after WW II (Jewish professors finding it easier to get jobs at black universities...) Overall, great experience for historical viewpoint of Charlotte and... More

Admissions are free on Sundays. On weekdays, if you have a BoA debit or credit card, admissions are free. Even if you have to pay $8.50, it’s worthwhile. Also, if you park in the adjacent garage, your ticket will be validated. It’s a small museum, but there’s so much content presented in a very organized manner. If the lady at... More

This museum focuses on the changes in the south from the Antebelllum Era though the twentieth century. The displays are engaging and informative.

While I'm not a history buff, this is a 'must see' when you have out of town visitors to Charlotte. Since I'm not a long-time resident, I learned a lot about the City's history. I thoroughly enjoyed this venue. It's well worth the entrance fee.

I came here on a whim when I had nothing else to do. I had no idea what to expect. I was blown away! I love how it puts your into the different scenes and sets. So many cool and interesting things. The end was a little weird and random but overall absolutely amazing! Can' wait to go back.

I have been to this museum a few times, they change their special exhibits periodically and they do some of the most interesting topics. I saw one on lynching and it was surprisingly good, yesterday I saw their new one on Gays, Lesbian, Trans-sexuals, etc. Again I was surprised about how well they cover these topics and present the exhibits...

As a history teacher, I am very critical of museums. The Levine Museum is accessible history that is accurate and cultivates an understanding of the New South. The focus on this time period and topic allow the museum to take guests in depth into the history and culture of North and South Carolina.

I took my son of 14 here not knowing what to expect. He did not enjoy it as much as I did. The main exhibit takes you through the history of Charlotte. A lot of pieces to physically look at while reading. My son did enjoy trying on the old time clothes and sitting in a old school barber chair.... More
