  • If you are visiting Charlotte this is a must see. This museum doesn’t just educate you but provides a fully immersive experience. There are several interactive exhibits and the location is perfect w/ample free parking right across the street.
  • Two ratings here averaged together above: Utilized their boardroom for an all day meeting space. Simply put, it was perfect. Quiet, large room with an equally large table. Only downside was the limited power outlets and their proximity but the staff provided cords to accommodate us. For corporate use: 4.5 stars The museum itself is exactly what everyone needs to see. The exhibits unabashedly examine and dissect the racial tensions that most southerners would rather not discuss. It is not a "fun" museum but every child that has ever asked their parents a question about race, gender or religious differences should visit it. By dedicating a museum to conflict, the Levine foundation helps our region and country chart a confluent path towards peace and prosperity. The museum: 5+ stars
  • This museum is a great display of culture of the South, which includes Charlotte, set out an interesting pattern that will draw you in. It's not just about reading but there are videos and interesting spaces. Well worth the visit.
  • If you want a museum that tells the history of what you are living right now...this is the place. The LMNS uses history to educate about the current issues happening in the CLT community. Parking is next door, as well as 7th St. Market. And you can get by light rail. Very convenient located.
  • Great museum that balances southern history both good and bad. Upstairs is an incredible exhibit on police brutality. Really well done.
