Interesting displays of the old south helps you to understand the changes that have taken place. Although there have been many changes to the lives of the people there is still some feelings of racial inequality .

This is a nice museum rich is Charlotte history. There are lots of exhibits and a few movies. It is only a few steps from the Cats line and other things to do in Charlotte. Like the First Ward park the market place and Discovery center, all worth seeing! The admission is $8

Moved here from the North and the Museum of the New South was one of the first places I visited. An excellent way to learn about the history and people. Very well done.

One of the best places in Charlotte to have your mind challenged, this museum is not just a repository of collected information, but a mindful gathering of an educational train of exhibits to illustrate the development of various topics. There is often opportunities to meet with others and discuss these topics, especially with an intention of bettering our world.
