What an outstanding step back into history. Amazing displays and our walking tour guide (Charlie) was well informed and delightful. A hidden treasure of Charlotte it is located on Shamrock right off of Eastway. Spend a few hours and enjoy the day.

The guided tour was the best part. The guide was fantastic and it was really enjoyable to take a step back in time. Admission is reasonable and worth every penny. I definitely recommend a visit to the Charlotte Museum of History if you are in the area.

Enjoyed our visit even though the temperature was over 100 the day we visited! Yikes, I was so looking forward to having a guide dressed in period costume ~ but, the temperature prevented that! However, Charlie, our guide was wonderful! Very informative, interesting and was able to answer most of our questions. As luck would have it we were the... More

This is a wonderful facility with so much potential for use and growth. I was literally THE ONLY visitor at the time I was there, and I thoroughly enjoyed my conversation with the guide, Charlie, who was very very knowledgeable! The stone house of Hezekiah is a MUST SEE!

My family went to the museum yesterday, and we loved it. My kids are 10,12, and 14. We took the walking tour with our lovely guide who was dressed in period costume (and did not break character the entire time), and we learned so much! The stone house was beautifully restored, and we loved hearing and seeing how people lived... More

At only $7 admission, we definitely got our money's worth! Take the tour, which is very informative and entertaining (also, the only way to see inside the buildings).

I've been here twice and still see new things. One of the visits had a recreator dressed as George Washington who interacted with people in the way one of that period would. The location near the Stone house was an added bonus as we were able to see, touch, and talk to people about the amazing history of the area... More
