The museum itself has primarily mounted displays to read, along with a nice diorama of Charlotte in the 1700s and some lovely antique furniture. Nothing really interactive, although there’s a great playroom for kids with playhouses which are miniatures of the historic home and the log kitchen. Would be great for rainy days with the kids. But then, you head out the back door of the museum and step into a tiny bit of wilderness in the city. Following a lovely burbling creek with many native plants, you come to the spring house, the beautifully restored stone Hezekiah Alexander house and log kitchen (rebuilt because of fire). On a rainy Tuesday morning, my sister and I had a docent to ourselves and were free to stay in each area as long as we wanted, asking lots of questions. Our young docent, Cooper, wasn’t from Charlotte but was obviously very well-versed and interested in local history. Definitely worth a couple of hours if you like history and architecture.

Stopped to see some history of Charlotte. Nice museum and then tour of the Alexander stone house. Very good tour of a original home of the early nineteenth century. Ringing the huge bell was unique. Well worth the time.

The history lesson has been unforgettable. A must to any one who visits the city for the first time and the added activities for children - a plus.

The museum was really a great time, the tour guides truly love the subject matter and kept our group of all ages enthralled! Really opened up one’s eyes to the booming city that became Charlotte, NC
