This is free and I'd be ashamed to charge to go in. It's one room, with some pictures and basically tells you very little. A few interesting facts about the history of Charlotte.

While visiting Charlotte, I was looking for a museum that would showcase the history of this great city. I thought the Levine Museum was that place. Turns out, it’s just one room with one exhibit. The exhibit while I was there was about incarceration. Luckily it was free for me to enter, however you have to park at a parking garage which wasn’t free. At least there’s several other museums near this block in Uptown.

We had family visiting from out of town, and were excited to take them to this museum.
What a huge disappointment. The wonderful museum we had loved for years is now a single room "exhibit". Don't bother going. Trust me, it's not worth your time.

I was excited to visit based on reviews, but what was once a museum is now only a single room!! Its "temporary home" is really small and not much to see. I was really disappointed and wished their website and other reviews included the change. It is just a display now, not a museum.

The museum provides a detailed history of the past 150 years of US South. Give yourself at least 90 minutes. It does not shy away from the shameful episodes the post-Civil War era. I found myself engaged in the first half of the museum with the older history. Things from the last 30-40 years or so were not as interesting. The museum is laid out in chronological order

This was a very interesting museum, very relevant. The focus is on the history from the Civil War to Present. Both positive and negative aspect are depicted. There are some interactive displays. Really glad we went.

My wife and I had visited this museum a number of years ago, and this was a worthwhile update and reminder of what we as a people did. This is not only a refection of the south, but of our country. We found that the exhibits are done in very good taste and a true depiction of who we were. The cost to go through was very reasonable, which makes it affordable for all to see.

The theme of historical change in the Deep South and Charlotte in particular was well presented. Both the positives and the negatives were covered in enlightening and challenging ways. While a number of historical references were common knowledge, the way they were integrated into local lore enhanced their meaning.
Of particular intrigue was the section on the demise of the "Brooklyn" area which is now largely a memory lost but not forgotten by those who grew up there. Having a slightly similar experience in my past, I was able to relate to their sense of loss.

(We parked in the garage next to the Museum as a convenience without prior consideration an the fee was $18. Across the street was outdoor parking for $10.)

An excellent museum. I did not expect such an informative interactive museum. We visited during COVID restrictions and it did not prevent us from enjoying the exhibits
