My wife and I visited the museum while attending a conference. We enjoyed our visit and found that the museum offers a balanced view of the history of Charlotte and North Carolina. It focuses on the history from the slave period to the recent years, reflecting on the farming history, textile years, and modern financial services period of the state.... More

More than what I expected when I first visited. This Museum does a good job at giving you a diverse history of the Charlotte area, and brings you up to date with current history. Very good visit for new residents of Charlotte. Take advantage of their free Sunday visits. Check the website for more information.

We learned so much of the growth of Charlotte from post civil-war to present. Well organized, eye catching displays, thorough descriptions. Takes about 1.5 - 2 hours to really enjoy and visit the whole museum. Worth the visit if you want to learn more about Charlotte and some of its history on its growth, civil rights and present.

Museum is small, yet packed with interactive exhibits that grab your attention. As a recent Charlotte transplant I was not familiar with the history and struggles of the south. The Levine is a great informative resource that should not be missed. Will be returning shortly with my family and friends so that they too can partake in this hidden gem.

My boyfriend and I went on a Sunday which had the added bonus of being free admission, and so was parking after getting our ticket validated. (But please be sure to donate at least what you can so they can keep the doors open!) The exhibit on display was Cottonfields to Skyscrapers. It was a honest and real depiction of... More

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

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.
