I was not expecting a ton out of the visit to this museum, but it actually was quite informative and captivating. It's extremely well put together with some of the best exhibits I've ever seen. Also, we went on a Sunday and if you have less than 10 people in your party on Sunday you get in free! (They prefer... More

Gives the newcomer a great introduction to Charlotte, it's past and it's present. I always take house guests there who are interested in knowing what makes Charlotte Charlotte.

This fine museum has cutting edge exhibits on topics other museums might not want to touch like desegregation and LGBT history.

if you want to know why it's called "Uptown" and how Charlotte grew into the city it is today, then this is the place for you. My husband and I live in Charlotte and went to the Levine Museum of the New South on MLK Day. We were blown away with how impressive the main exhibit was. The soundbites and... More

We visited on a recent Saturday afternoon and were so impressed with the museum. We took our 25 year old son and his girlfriend, and we all enjoyed it. The history of the region from the end of the Civil War to the present was very well presented - a nice mix of video, print and hands on exhibits. Great... More

I visited with friends while on a short visit and really liked the museum. So much of what I see here in the south is about the pre civil and civil war era. It was refreshing to learn about the changes, struggles, and wins that occurred after the war. For me it was a new way of seeing the South.... More

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.
