This museum represents the south in an interesting manner. The displays of each period of time made us want to read, interact and look at pictures. As a retired couple we would highly recommend this museum.

This place was a great stop over in Charlotte for our group that ranged from 18 months - 39 years old. The museum was both hands on and lots of reading. Well put together and interesting information about Charlotte and the surrounding area.
