This beautiful museum is clean, modern, and easily navigated. We enjoyed following the main exhibit, which outlines southern history after the Civil War, at our own pace. The museum was practically deserted on a weekday afternoon so we were able to spend as much time...More

On our return bus trip from Ocala, FL to Canada and back...we stopped at this museum. We highly recommend visiting this enlightening place. The displays and information bring awareness and understanding. The entire museum is well done.

This visit to about an hour, and was enjoyable. I was staying in Downtown Charlotte, and it was an easy walk to get there, didn't cost much and was air conditioned. My guess is most people who live/work in Charlotte haven't been there, but if...More

We needed to kill some time in Charlotte. This museum sounded interesting and it was! Nice way to spend a couple of hours. Not expensive ($8 for adults). I loved walking through the "life size" exhibits. The extra exhibits upstairs were great as well. What...More
