  • The Harvey B. Gantt Center is a work of art in and of itself, but venture inside and you will see some of the best and most meaningful (to me) contemporary art in the country right now. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The exhibits are well lit and include large quotes from the artist's on the walls. PS, yes you can (and should) go here if you are wanting to learn about Black art and culture. No need just drive by for years like I did since moving to Charlotte! Go check it out!
  • Awesome experience. A lot of diverse artwork. Pleasant scenery. Great place to visit
  • I do really like this museum, I would rate it 5 stars if there was a more diverse selection of art to see, but unfortunately the art here is quite limited. This is definitely a must see if you're in the area though.
  • Empowering. Educational. Entertaining. Exceptional delivery of African American art, history and culture.
  • Enjoyed a lovely event at the location. It is close to deck parking and a lovely facility . #LadyBizness approved

Where to stay in Charlotte

To avoid driving or riding on public buses during your visit to Charlotte, book your room in or near the city center. You can find most of Charlotte's chain hotels in so-called "Uptown," the centrally located business district and hub of tourist action. Hotels near the airport provide good low-rate options for travelers on a limited budget. These spots offer rooms with access to major roads, allowing you to explore the region quickly and easily.
