Excellent museum with a focus on the "new South" - worth checking out whether you live in Charlotte or are visiting.

Charlotte doesn't offer a whole lot to do, but we found this little museum full of interesting history. The displays are well done, descriptions are very good, history is comprehensive & unbiased. The upstairs galleries weren't as interesting but we strolled through all of them.

This museum is perfect for adults and kids from age 9+. Lots of insight how Charlotte was developed. There was a lot about the fight against prejudice and segregation. Important for all of us to be reminded how awful that was. Beautiful and clean facility...More

This place tells the history of North Carolina, civil rights movement and before and after. There are some really interesting things to interact with and read etc. I'd recommend going here if you would like to know the history of NC.

This is a medium sized museum based around the history of post Civil War in the South. Lots of interesting exhibits including a number of very well laid out 'historic sets'. Definitely worth visiting.

Really enjoyed the history, the layout of the museum flows throughout the timeline, lots of visuals and hands on so good for kids too. Really felt like you had a good overview of Charlotte and the surrounding areas.
