Very interesting look at how the South has changed -- and problems that still exist and the root causes. Lots of interactivity, including a chance to touch cotton in various stages of production. We didn't participate but there was a great art project for kids while we were there.

Very interesting museum. Starts with a little movie, then brings you right into the cotton farms and the slavery. Gradually comes closer to the present day with a load of interesting information and nice-to-knows. North Carolina specifically (but the surrounding states and the US in general as well) had some extremely negative as well as positive decade's that I knew... More

My wife and I visited from England on our 7th wedding anniversary and we are glad we did. We were keen to find out more about the history of the south and found the museum to be hugely informative and engaging. I couldn't believe how racist the old south was and love the new south. Massive progress to be proud... More

Visited as part of a tour group, included breakfast which was delicious . The museum informed me of a couple of interesting facts that I wasn't aware of, the origin of Belk department store and Lance snacks, there are many exhibits showing how life was lived in the old south. I feel that it'sa must see for the younger generation.

In fact, as I was visiting on a Monday it was my only choice. Even the historic Polk (past President of US) home was closed. So I spent the $6.00 fee for seniors and took a look. I went throught the whole place shivering my timbers off and wishing I had brought a jacket as I could hardly enjoy much... More

This museum tells the story of Charlotte and the South from the Civil War to modern times. Many things to see and touch. Each exhibit is like a small museum unto itself. I liked the theatre with newsreels, the dept. store with the old fashions and the barber shop. There is a short 10 min. film at the start on... More

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.
