For now the museum is open the first Saturday of the Month only. The volunteers that work there are very enthusiastic and passionate about the history of the site and it shows. I grew up in Charlotte and don't think I had ever been here before so I learned quite a bit about the legacy fo the city/county that I never knew.
This isn't the trendy museum to go to but it is easily the best experience regardless of age.

The CMH has a very nice building and grounds and well worth an afternoon or morning visit. it is unfortunately located off the beaten path where there are fewer dining options or other services. It also competes with the Museum of the New South in the Uptown Charlotte in coverage and interpretation of local history.

Nice museum plus you can go into the building on the historic homestead site. It is well preserved. It is a bit of a hike from the museum to the site and is up and down hills. Allow at least 3 hours to see.

The Museum is having funding problems so only open 1st. Sat. of each month, from 1-5. You can only tour the Hezekiah Alexander House. It is worth it to see this historic house. Built in 1774, Hezekiah Alexander was one of the signers of the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence. Well infromed docents in period costumes, explain how the people during this time period lived. Hope they can get more funding.

We were able to see it tonight at a special event. But it has been closed due to financial difficulty. It currently has a new display of aprons. Outside is a very large freedom bell. Behind this facility is the Rock House. Built in 1774.
