What a great review of the history: from cotton mill to skyscapers. We learned a lot. Interactive, cheap (8$) and located in center city. I recommand ++

First time to visit....well laid out and easy to read the information on the displays. Well done videos in several areas. It's amazingly sad to see the way Americans treated other Americans over the years....I learned many things I don't remember ever hearing before. We went in and were told it was FREE for the day - so you can't... More

It was interesting to learn about this time period certainly, and it had nice displays like setups of 1950s barbers, shops, churches etc. informative. Perhaps a little dull for teenagers or children.

It was recommended by a friend who lives locally and I was not disappointed. The staff were informative and helpful. The exhibits were first class, emotional and challenging. Loved finding out about the culture and history.

Wow, this is a great museum! The permanent exhibits are high quality and very interesting. This is a great experience for anyone who grew up in the Charlotte area because it will bring back memories from a few decades ago. This is also a great experience for anyone who's new to the Charlotte area or visiting because it will help... More

I had an overnight stop in Charlotte, NC and was recommended this museum. It was informative, with simple and easy to read script. It charts the development of the New South and the move from rural life to urban growth, from slavery to full integration. I thought I knew a lot about the South, but I learnt so much more.... More

If you want to understand the important points of recent history (post Civil War) that make up Charlotte's character, go here! They present the area's history in a honest, non-bias and interactive manner that's interesting and poignant for all ages whether a born and bread citizen of NC (like myself), newcomer and/or visitor. Also have great free public activities and... More

If you want to know about American history in the south, this is a great place to visit. It may have full of cotton-pickers at one time, but industry and invention took over. Cities and industry benefitted greatly from the railroad, and modern technology and finance are its main staples today. After your visit you will come away with a... More
