The permanent exhibit "From Cotton Fields to Skyscrapers" is incredibly interesting, and I learn something new every time I go through. The rotating exhibits are always worth touring, offering insights into historical events that are useful when considering current events. And the special programs, panel...More

I took three of my children here one day while they were still in high school. It turned out to be a great experience. The museum has a way of presenting facts, some were pretty tough. It was not one sided, it was very honest...More

The Levine Museum is a classy educational trip that all in North Carolina should visit. I had a great time and it was truly a lesson of history. Nice place to visit on a weekend.

I cannot think of a better place to spend 30-60 minutes as a means of putting in perspective this vibrant City and its history in the heart of the Cotton Belt of yesteryear. The exhibits have been well assembled and are informative but not boring.

I learned a lot about the City's history and transformation from textile town to financial center. The exhibits on race and protests was enlightening and very profound. The exhibits are very detailed and informative. I am glad I went.

If you want to absorb the historical context of modern day North Carolina this is the place to do it. We thoroughly enjoyed it and felt much more informed when we finished.
