Well, took the kids for a little culture, and got a HISTORY LESSON to boot!! It was presented very fairly, I believe, and showed all sides of the issue of slavery and just being black & poor in the south! Very enlightening, very educational, kids were very interested in the whole thing... and especially the 2nd floor... it was ALL... More

Although there were many parts that I really enjoyed learning about, there was a decided liberal slant to a great deal of the museum. I don't appreciate that. It seems like they are trying to brainwash people who come through, especially the kids. They have quite a few places to leave a sticky note on the wall, where they have... More

After reading the other reviews, I really thought this museum was going to be bigger, but despite its small size, it was very well done. It provided a very nice overview of Charlotte's history and had featured some fun hands-on exhibits. I would recommend.

Very good museum. I learned a lot about Charlotte in a very short visit. Good interactive exhibits. The movies are worth the time. It was also interesting to see all the companies (other than banks) that have headquarters in Charlotte.

The Levine Musuem is a great place to learn about the South and its rich contribution to the US and its 50 states. The Musuem is kid friendly and senior friendly. There are areas to rest, relax and conversation. I recommend this Musuem for families, seniors, teens and middle school kids. May be boring for very young kids. Space for... More

WHAT A WONDERFUL surprise and was able to take in both while my cousin was visiting! They are great museums to visit!!! Being from Chicago, I am spoiled when it comes to museums but I plan on visiting again as soon as possible. Worth planning the time to visit both locations.

Great exhibits. Nice layout of the museum. The outside of the museum was less than expected and I did not realize I had arrived until I was right at the front door. Knowledgeable tour guides.

Whether you are a visitor or local your time is well spent at this museum. Young and old alike. We take friends when they visit. They have a wonderful standard portion that is permanent and often have a visiting exhibit. So even if you have gone before there is something new. You may think that you know the south until...
