  • Not very large but quite informative and educational. Would recommend this location/museum to others. Down town, easy walk from most hotels and the staff was quite willing to answer questions  more »
  • It opens at 9 and the visit is free. The museum is part of a bank lobby. It's is informative, very well done and quite interesting. It takes less than an hour and it's well worth the time.  more »

  • FREE! Totally worth a pop in for FREE! I was surprised by all the things they encourage you to get hands-on with and push buttons. There was a woman working the desk but didn't pester us at all. Could be fun for a family as well.
  • I needed to kill time before an appointment. History was ok. The one staff member that was there was not welcoming or friendly. No cost to get in, don't go out of your way for this one.
  • One of the must do attractions in Charlotte. Best of all its FREE !
  • Liked that you can print your own 5 cents lol
  • Nice place with fun historical stations for kids to interact with.

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.
