A real "low expectation" but "high return" activity for Charlotte visitors and residents alike. I think it is particularly interesting to the baby boom generation, but the Millennials will like it also. Location is right downtown and close to Discovery Place - great attraction for the younger kids.

Worth a quick visit if in Charlotte. A lot of work has gone in to the exhibits. Oriented more towards kids but we enjoyed it too.

We just moved here last year and did not know much about the NC area. This museum is a great way to get a feel for the area and the history of it.

We took a self-guided tour through this museum to learn about the "New South." They also offer group tours. We were glad to go and be enlightened about Charlotte's history and growth.

This small museum was an unexpected gem. Their permanent exhibit is stellar. It is a great way to spend a few hours with your children learning about and discussing a variety of social phenomena-- including the move from agrarian to industrial economies and the impact on society; class and race issues; etc. There are interactive elements that keep children engaged...

My niece rented out the entire museum for a wedding reception. The staff were great with helping decorate and tear down and seemed to go out of their way to make things easier to get done. It was a wonderful and unique place for a reception. Would recommend!

I love this museum. It teaches you all about the history of Charlotte and how life was back then on the farm and in the factories. Interactive museum as well. Highly recommend.
