This beautiful museum is clean, modern, and easily navigated. We enjoyed following the main exhibit, which outlines southern history after the Civil War, at our own pace. The museum was practically deserted on a weekday afternoon so we were able to spend as much time...More

We needed to kill some time in Charlotte. This museum sounded interesting and it was! Nice way to spend a couple of hours. Not expensive ($8 for adults). I loved walking through the "life size" exhibits. The extra exhibits upstairs were great as well. What...More
