  • I found this museum to be a great way to have deep discussions about southern history, but to also have a deep, meaningful discussion about immigration, prejudice, and civil rights. I was there for an...  read more »
  • We enjoyed our experience attending the museum. We attended as part of the school fair so it was free admission but still worth the low cost! Plus if you part in their deck they have some parking vali...  read more »
  • I liked the current exhibits and the way that they had things laid out. Locals can easily get there by train. Parking is free. I like the way things are laid out. 
  • I enjoyed the exhibits, and my wife, who just moved here from Japan, really enjoyed seeing the history of the city and area. I wasn't a fan of the upstairs exhibit, however, but to each their own. What really ruined the experience for me, was when I realized my parking wasn't validated, I walked back over and told the girl behind the front desk the machine was telling me I owed $16, and I don't think the validation worked. She told me sometimes the machine says you owe money even if your parking is validated (the other member of my group's ticket didn't show that...) and when I told her this she said it was fine. Sure enough, as I try to leave the deck, the machine says I owe $16! As cars stacked up behind me, the parking attendant got on her walkie and after a few minutes I was cleared. You'd hope front desk attendants can at least validate your parking correctly, to avoid an embarrassing situation that's a real hassle.
  • Interesting museum, giving you the history of Charlotte. I went to it when one of these free Sundays was on. I'm not sure if I really think it's worth $8 for the museum, $5 or $6 is a more reasonable price. Well worth going if you have a small family, there are some child friendly exhibits as well.
  • It was really educational learning about Charlotte from cotton to sky scrapers. I think kids and adults alike would find the display on Charlotte's culture interesting if it's the main exhibit.
  • Great museum from in central Carolina from1860s to present on often difficult topics. Nice effort to bring back up to current Charlotte with Latin diversity in the upstairs exhibit. Informational, encouraging and thought provoking. Well done.
  • Interesting space. Name is a little misleading, as it really doesn't focus on the New South as it does the New South period of Charlotte & NC Piedmont.
