I have been to this museum a few times, they change their special exhibits periodically and they do some of the most interesting topics. I saw one on lynching and it was surprisingly good, yesterday I saw their new one on Gays, Lesbian, Trans-sexuals, etc. Again I was surprised about how well they cover these topics and present the exhibits...

As a history teacher, I am very critical of museums. The Levine Museum is accessible history that is accurate and cultivates an understanding of the New South. The focus on this time period and topic allow the museum to take guests in depth into the history and culture of North and South Carolina.

I took my son of 14 here not knowing what to expect. He did not enjoy it as much as I did. The main exhibit takes you through the history of Charlotte. A lot of pieces to physically look at while reading. My son did enjoy trying on the old time clothes and sitting in a old school barber chair.... More

What a pleasant surprise. Loved the relevance of this museum and they were true to their theme of contrasting the old and the new south.

The Levine Museum of the New South is a very nice museum that does a fantastic job at educating the public about Charlotte's past, present, and future. While primarily focusing on Charlotte itself, it also touches on achievements and problems of the South in general. Being from the North, I found the information presented to be very educational and interesting.... More

I grew up in the South, my daughter didn't come here til 1993, my grandchildren were born and have been raised here. The exhibits in this museum meant a lot to me: one half my family were subsistence farmers, then went to work in the textile mills. My daughter, now 32, is a bit of a history geek. My grandchildren,... More

Free on Sundays! Donations accepted. The museum is intimate, clean, and informative. Although it does not have all the fancy stuff like bigger museums, it does its job of relaying facts through its exhibits and multimedia presentations.

The Levine Museum of the New South is an informative and fun history. As a visitor from Pennsylvania, I gained insight on what happened in the early years of Charlotte. There were many exhibits with photos, audio and video that enhanced the displays on the first floor. Seeing the tenant farmer's house, feeling the cotton, and walking into the Belk... More

I've taken family members. I've taken groups of kids. I've gone for programs. And this has always, always been an intriguing museum. In fact, it's not your average museum. It seeks to inform and make you think. It covers topics you don't expect to see here in the deep South. Like recording the connections between Latinos and African-Americans, Charlotte's civil...
