    A nice outdoor space with a large playground area. Well maintained and a pleasure to walk through or to relax or to take your children. Well done.

    This museum is user friendly, interactive, and complete with all modes of learning addressed. The historic piece in each section really appealed to the former NASCAR race attendee which would describe me. For my husband, it rekindled his interest in following the sport again.

    IDEAL hands-on learning experience for both parents and kids.

    My husband and i brought our four-month-old to Discovery place this week (ok we enjoyed the science more than she did) and spent four hours enjoying the exhibits.

    As a parent who appreciates learning opportunities, this place is possibly even more satisfying for us! Lol The amount of time your trip takes is really just dependent on how much time you allocate to reading the information in each exhibit. I always enjoyed science and history, but truth be told — there was a lot of interesting information to learn here for adults too.

    The museum as a whole is incredibly diverse. From rooms dedicated to the nervous system, to paleontology, to phytoplankton, there is so much to absorb. Many exhibits have interactive elements, hands-on experiments, and video clips to explain AND make science appealing to children.

    *Reviewer insight* — make sure to visit during an IMAX showing time! The dome theater is a one of a kind experience for babies to elderly.

    All in all — will be taking my kids here as they get older! Great experience.

    Really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Never watched or seen a baseball game before so it was a very new experience for me.

    We took our family for the first time. They loved it! We did not experience any long wait times. The park was not crowed, thankfully it’s was cloudy so the weather was perfect. Nighthawk was closed that was disappointing. Overall it was a good experience!

    We also used the free pet kennel. It was FREE! It was no frills! My dog was safe and it was temp controlled. You have to be a responsible owner and check on your pet. Yes, you will have leave the park and walk to the building… It was free! I had to walk and give him water... It was free! I walked him down from the building to a grassier area……. It was free! I was happy the park offered the free service, since we were traveling. It was free! But be warned, if your dog doesn’t like loud noises, it is below one of the roller coasters………………. I mean it was FREE!

    I loved seeing Jimmies garage while in Charlotte! All my nascar fans have repeatedly told me to come check this place out when in Charlotte. NEVER will let a NAscar fan down! I encourage all to check it out!

    I am visiting Charlotte to attend a certification course and visiting some cousins and they took me to downtown Charlotte to see it and get a feel for its history. I thought the Mint Museum would be all about coins and currency and I was completely wrong.
    This museum was great! Spread out over several floors, it was divided into different sections of art utilizing different materials (wood, glass, metal, textiles) and paintings (oil mostly) sculptures and more.
    Curated in a most fascinating way, it was common to see art created in the 1700's beside something created within the last few years, and paired up to be in themes that allowed them to really complement each other.
    I thought this place was absolutely terrific and well worth the small price of admission.
    It is accessible, enjoyable and could be viewed in a half day or less.
    I look forward to a return trip here one day

    We visited Belk (again) in July 2022 to see the Blue Man Group. While we've seen better performances by the group at other venues, the Belk Theater still has a huge variety of shows and good seating all around.
