Young children enjoyed seeing the dinosaurs as well as the usual stuffed animals. The pirate ship was a big hit and fun to play on. When you purchase your ticket, make sure to include the planetarium show. It is not included in general admission .

I am ashamed to say I've lived in the Charlotte area for over 30 years and this was my first visit. I was very impressed at how much exhibit space they have packed into a building with a fairly small footprint by museum standards. They...More

$40 for two adults and two students. I'm sorry to say that the insect collections were the highlights of this older museum. The animals in the North American displays looked ragged. The dinosaur exhibit could only excite a five year old. The only reason that...More
