South of Charlotte, near Waxhaw in rural Union County, is a hidden gem that is worth searching out. This free museum features colorful, interesting displays that detail the progress of written communication throughout history. Scattered throughout the rooms are interactive displays that will capture the attention of school age kids as well as adults. It's a good place for home schooling families. You can breeze through in 30 minutes, but to "see it all" you could easily spend a full day or more. On week days lunch is available for purchase across the street at the JAARS Center. (Large groups need to make reservations.)
I became familiar with this museum when I served on staff with JAARS. Now retired, I still take friends to visit when they are in the area.
