Always cutting edge, this museum consistently tells the "rest" of the story...check out the latest and the permanent exhibits. Walking distance from most places Uptown.

There is an excellent explanation of things that happened. The explanation is okay for children. My mother, Goldie Mae York Thompson, was sitting at the counter when the 4 students sat down at the counter. This was the first encounter she had with Black people.

This is a great museum that is affordable and efficient. One can spend as much time as they want or as little time as they want. There are interesting exhibits that are hands-on + convey their message effectively. I have taken my students there on field trips + recommended it to out of town travelers. Very informative exhibits that really... More

This is an excellent museum. I found the exhibits to be interactive and engaging. I learned a tremendous amount about the area's history and felt able to connect to the past. I definitely recommend this.

The southern evolution exhibit that you can walk through is amazing. It literally allows you to experience three centuries of the Carolinas. On Sundays, admission is free and when you leave you feel guilty and end up donating to keep this place free on Sundays. This is a great geeky date spot, great for kids, and great for anyone who...

I went with a fellow middle school teacher to check out this attraction to see if it would be a good field trip for our 8th graders. In the end we decided "no." Not because it wasn't good; mostly because it was overwhelming with all the information. The permanent exhibit on the main floor is amazing. You basically walk along... More

Thanks for visiting! We're glad you enjoyed Cotton Fields to Skyscrapers and we encourage you to think about visiting with your class as part of a Guided Tour experience. Guided tours, led by Museum-trained docents, are better able to give context and "flow" for the history presented in the exhibit. Our docents not only help simplify and categorize the information,...

I stopped in this museum at recommendation of a guide at the National Whitewater Center and was not disappointed! It was fascinating to learn about the history of the area after the Civil War. I particularly enjoyed the cotton mill history and the history of the busing controversy, especially the women who hosted dinners to discuss this matter in a... More

We had a great time exploring the museum and learning more about Charlotte and southern life. As northern transplants, the exhibits really helped us appreciate how people lived in the past and how vastly the city has changed. The children really enjoyed the interactive displays and were anxious to move on and see what each area of the museum contained.... More
