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.

This was my fav museum in Charlotte compared to some of the other ones.. It was a great walk through of how African immigrants were brought in and how they progressed. Would definitely recommend people especially tourists to visit... The admission fee wasn't even expensive..

Very accessible, within walking distance of downtown. Nice little museum to spend an hour or two. Interesting displays explaining the development and history of Charlotte and outlying area.

If you are "new" to the South, maybe it'd be interesting, but having grown up in the South, it was like looking at stuff I've seen my whole life. From being part of a "mill town" to farming...if these are things you want to see some history of, Levine is ok. For me, it wasn't much.

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.
